SynergEyes Expands Duette Progressive Hybrid Line with the Addition of Center Distance Lens

Center Distance FlexOptics Provide Adjustable Center Distance Zone Size and Adds up to +5.00D

Carlsbad, CA (January 25, 2018) – SynergEyes, Inc., the worldwide leader in hybrid contact lens technology, announces the expansion of the Duette Progressive hybrid line with the addition of a customizable Center Distance contact lens. The new design has Center Distance FlexOpticsTM, with an adjustable center distance zone size ranging from 1.8 – 4.0mm, driven by photopic pupil size, and add powers from +0.75 to +5.00D.

Recognizing that all eyes are different and pupil sizes vary, the Duette Progressive line now offers hybrid lenses customizable for the Continuum of Presbyopia, even for those with astigmatism. The Center Distance design provides a customized vision solution for emerging to advanced presbyopes. The Center Near design offers the advanced presbyope clear vision at all distances. The Duette Progressive family now delivers the complete Presbyopic Package.

During a 2017 pre-launch program, eye care professionals across the United States successfully prescribed Duette Progressive Center Distance for their presbyopic patients. Practitioners consistently commented on the positive impact the resulting successful presbyopic fits brought to their practice.

SynergEyes’ President and CEO James K. Kirchner, O.D. states “We are very excited to bring the new Duette Progressive Center Distance lens to our customers. This exciting lens enables practitioners to have the complete presbyopic package for the entire range of presbyopic needs.
