Offering the crisp vision of a rigid contact lens and the comfort of a soft contact lens, Synergeyes also offers a multi-focal design for anyone over 40 years old. Duette, the latest specialized version of this hybrid contact lens, is a high-oxygen based soft contact lens fused to a rigid gas-permeable lens.

Colored Contact Lenses
Some contact lenses are also available in various colors, or tints.
If you desire a new look, or wish to make your eyes match your mood, or just change your eye color for a special occasion, we offer colored contact lenses that will meet your wishes.
Types of colored contact lenses
Colored contact lenses come in a variety of tints. Some are tinted so you can see the lens easier when inserting them, but the visibility tint has no effect on the visible color of your eye. Others will enhance your natural eye color or you can choose contact lenses that actually change the color of your eye for a more dramatic look.
Advancements in colored contact lenses have brought us the new AirOptix Colors contact lenses. These new lenses have improved breathability compared to older alternative colored lenses. They are designed for daily wear, with a monthly replacement schedule. Simply remove and clean the lenses daily, and then replace them with a fresh pair every month. Packages come with six lenses per box, so the convenience of a year’s supply of contacts is achieved with just 4 boxes of lenses.
If you are interested in colored contact lenses, please call our office to schedule an appointment.
Multifocal Contact Lenses
As we get older, our vision begins to deteriorate from natural aging of the lens inside the eye. This condition, Presbyopia, makes it difficult to focus on near objects. Reading glasses over contact lenses used to be the only option available to contact lens wearers who wanted to read a menu or do other everyday tasks that required good near vision. But now with many different multifocal contact lens options, we can often have the best of both worlds — good near and distance vision — without wearing glasses.
One such lens is the Biofinity Multifocal. This monthly replacement, highly breathable contact lens gives many different lens power options, using Coopervision’s “Balanced Progressive Technology.”
For patients with higher distance vision demands, a “D lens” is used. In this design, the multifocal power is placed in the periphery of the lens. For those with higher near demands, an “N lens” is used. In this design, the multifocal power is concentrated in the center of the lens. A combination of these two designs can be used to give patients clear vision at both ranges. And for those with more demanding intermediate vision needs, such as computer use, lower powers in either design style are often used.
If multifocal lenses aren’t tolerated by a patient, often monovision lenses are an option. In this circumstance, the dominant eye lens power is set for clearest distance vision, while the non-dominant eye’s power is set for the patient’s desired reading distance.
Whatever your circumstance, know that multifocal and monovision contact lenses may be an option for you!
Duette™ hybrid contact lens for regular astigmatism
Duette™ is the only FDA cleared silicone hydrogel hybrid contact lens for astigmatism
- RGP center provides superior HD vision.
- Design corrects astigmatism so vision is never blurry or out of focus, even at night.
- Silicone hydrogel skirt offers all-day comfort like a soft lens.
- HealthyEyes™ surface treatment keeps lens moist all day.
- Breathable materials keep eyes healthy and white.
- Special lens material blocks harmful UVA and UVB rays.
- Design prevents dirt from getting under lens and lens from popping-out.
SynergEyes® A hybrid contact lens for regular and irregular astigmatism
- The rigid center corrects regular and irregular astigmatism and delivers crisp, high definition vision…even at night.
- The soft skirt keeps the lens stable, while providing the all-day comfort and wearability of a soft lens. The soft skirt also prevents debris from getting underneath the lens and keeps the lenses securely on the eye, so SynergEyes lenses will not dislodge.
- SynergEyes lenses are free from “toric lens rotation,” so the optics remain stable delivering consistently clear vision – blink after blink.
SynergEyes® Multifocal for presbyopia
Only the SynergEyes® Multifocal offers the benefits of a hybrid contact lens:
- The hybrid design puts the near and distance optics exactly where you need them and keeps them there – even when you blink or shift your gaze
- High definition vision that only a “hard” lens can provide with two areas of focus customized just for you: one for distance and one for near, so you will always see clearly, both up close and far away
- All-day comfort similar to a soft lens
- Ability to correct astigmatism, nearsightedness, and farsightedness while simultaneously providing computer and reading vision
- Crisp, clear vision at near and far in both eyes
- A contact lens that will deliver excellent vision through all stages of presbyopia – you won’t need to change lens designs as your eyesight changes with age.
Rigid Gas Permeable (GP) Contact Lenses
Soft contact lenses are the most common type of contact lens, but there is another lesser-known category of contact lens materials called rigid gas permeable (RGP) contact lenses. RGP’s are rigid, but shouldn’t be confused with old-style “hard” contact lenses, which are now obsolete.
The newer RGP materials supersede the old “hard” contacts by improving comfort and transmitting more oxygen to the eye. For some patients, RGP’s can also provide better vision, durability, and deposit resistance than soft contact lenses.
SynergEyes® Hybrid Contact Lenses – Provide Comfort and Exceptional Vision
SynergEyes® hybrid contact lenses offer the crisp, clear vision of a rigid lens, with the comfort of a soft lens. It’s the best of both worlds. The soft outer skirt provides all-day comfort while the “breathable” rigid center keeps eyes healthy while delivering consistent, crisp, clear vision… even at night.
SynergEyes® hybrid contact lenses offer vision correction solutions for a variety of conditions:
- Myopia (nearsightedness)
- Hyperopia (farsightedness)
- Post-surgical patients
Whether you have an early, moderate, or advanced stage of keratoconus, SynergEyes has a lens that will deliver clear vision and comfort for you.
Types of Contact Lenses
Types of contact lenses vary depending on the type of correction. The type of contact lens recommended for each patient will vary based on your vision needs.
- Nearsightedness with Astigmatism
- Nearsightedness with Astigmatism and Presbyopia (over age 40)
- Farsightedness with Astigmatism
- Farsightedness with Astigmatism and Presbyopia (over age 40)
- Presbyopia (over age 40)
- Specialty (including multifocal, post LASIK patients, keratoconus, high astigmatism, pellucid degeneration, post surgical corneas and post corneal transplant patients)
These lenses can be used in combination with each other, depending on a particular patient’s needs. For example, non-multifocal lenses can be used in “monovision” setup as an alternative to multifocal contact lenses. Here, one eye is corrected with a distance lens and the other with a reading lens in order to give a patient multiple, clear distances. As another example, bifocal lenses are also now available with and without astigmatism correction.
Types of contact lenses:
The following types of Contact lenses may be available in:
- Toric Multifocal
- Gas Permeable
Wearing contact lenses also comes with its own risks that can lead to infections. To prevent discomfort and complications, here’s what you can do to protect your eyes:
- Always practice good hygiene before handling contacts.
- Care and clean your contacts using only sterile contact lens solutions.
- Replace contact lenses according to your brand’s recommended instructions.
- Follow manufacturer guidelines when replacing your contact lenses.
- If your vision blurs or you experience pain or extreme sensitivity to light, remove your contacts and see your eye doctor immediately.
