The SynergEyes® Story
SynergEyes®, Inc. was founded in 2001 with a goal to address a recognized market need by developing and launching a contact lens that offers better vision thereby giving eye care professionals a path to successful, happy patients. The technical platform that was chosen combined the superior visual acuity of a rigid gas permeable lens with the comfort of a soft contact lens. The patented technology, with market clearances worldwide, is today providing comfortable clear vision through the services of more than 7,000 eye care practitioners around the globe.
In September 2005, SynergEyes® received FDA "clearance to market" for the SynergEyes® A lens. Over the subsequent six months, the company received market clearance for six additional lens designs – including ClearKone® and SynergEyes® KC lenses for patients with keratoconus, the SynergEyes Multifocal lens for patients with presbyopia, and the SynergEyes® PS lens for patients with refractive errors following corneal surgery and trauma. These lenses were specifically designed for patients with irregular corneas.
In 2010, SynergEyes expanded the business beyond products for patients with irregular corneas into the mainstream everyday patient market. Today, SynergEyes manufactures and markets the Duette family of contact lenses for everyday patients seeking to upgrade their vision. Duette™ HD contact lenses are for astigmatic patients who are looking for a contact lens that delivers exceptional vision. Duette Multifocal lenses are for patients over 40 who are seeking great vision for every point of view.
For 2013, SynergEyes is proud to introduce SynergEyes UltraHealth™ the first hybrid contact lens with a high-Dk silicone hydrogel skirt. UltraHealth is designed to give your irregular cornea, keratoconus, and ectasia patients an unprecedented combination of superior vision and all-day comfort while helping to maintain eye health.
The SynergEyes® family of lenses fulfills the original goal of providing a solution that addresses the full continuum of vision needs by providing excellent visual acuity and all day comfort. The company prides itself in being a partner with and advocate for independent eye care professionals.
