Winning an Optician Award is one of the highest accolades optical professionals, practices and companies can achieve in the UK.
In 2018 SynergEyes launched an exciting new progressive lens into its hybrid contact lens portfolio. This new lens was introduced to the Duette range for fitting regular corneas and is a Center-Distance design. Sitting alongside its pre-existing Center-Near lens, Duette Progressive now offers maximum flexibility of lens selection to the contact lens practitioner in order to fully and successfully correct their astigmatic presbyopes at distance and near. SynergEyes believes that fitting astigmats, especially astigmatic presbyopes, opens up a new and currently untapped business opportunity for practices and that the high performance of this new contact lens will build patient loyalty and retention.
Duette Progressive offers:
- An intuitive fitting approach and high-performance vision for astigmatic presbyopes
- Uncompromised GP optics ensuring:
- Corneal astigmatism is fully corrected enabling the practitioner and their patient to focus on the progressive performance
- A seamless progression of power from distance to near or near to distance
Together, the two designs cover the continuum of care progression from emerging, moderate and advanced presbyopes. Center-Distance Duette design is ideal for early and moderate presbyopes and the center-near design is especially suited for moderate to advanced presbyopes.
