Carlsbad, CA (Jan. 5, 2015) – SynergEyes, Inc., the worldwide leader in hybrid contact lens technology, has expanded parameters for its Duette® lens – the high-performance contact lens for astigmatic patients. Parameters are now available in 0.1mm increments to facilitate even more precise alignment fitting and optimal centration.
“Based on the strong increase in patient and practitioner satisfaction produced by the recent expansion of Duette® Progressive lens parameters, we are pleased to offer expanded parameters on Duette as well. The new parameters will allow practitioners to optimize clear and stable vision for even more patients,” said SynergEyes’ President and CEO James K. Kirchner, O.D.
SynergEyes also has expanded its doctor resources with the release of seven video tutorials for Duette, which complement its Duette Progressive videos. The Duette videos, each only a few minutes in length, are available through the “Video Tutorials” link on the homepage of synergeyes.com/professional. The step-by-step tutorials cover: lens design, lens calculator, fitting guide, lens dispensing, optimizing fit, optimizing vision and optimizing patient compliance.
Combining exceptional GP optics with SoftCushionTM comfort technology, Duette provides crisp, clear, consistently stable high-performance vision for patients, especially those with astigmatism. The UV-blocking lens also features an 84 Dk silicone hydrogel skirt around the 130 Dk center. A patient’s initial pair of Duette lenses can be designed empirically based on a refraction and corneal curvature measurements.
