SynergEyes Expands Tangible Hydra-PEG Coating to Both UltraHealth and Duette Hybrid Lenses

Carlsbad, CA (May 15, 2017) – SynergEyes, Inc., the worldwide leader in hybrid contact lens technology, announces the expansion of the Tangible Hydra-PEG coating to UltraHealth hybrid contact lenses. The lubricious “breakthrough polymer coating”1 developed by Tangible Science recently became available on Duette and Duette Progressive lenses. Due to the positive response to the coating, and multiple customer requests, irregular corneal patients can now also experience the coating benefits on  UltraHealth lenses.

During a pre-launch program, seventeen optometrists fit 141 patients with Duette and Duette Progressive with Tangible Hydra-PEG, with patients and doctors citing great optics and all-day comfort. Ninety percent of Duette wearers described Duette with Tangible Hydra-PEG as comfortable, with the majority reporting comfortable wear for over 13 hours per day2.

Since January 2017, eye care professionals across the United States have been successfully prescribing Duette with Tangible Hydra-PEG for their astigmatic and presbyopic patients. Practitioners have consistently commented on the positive impact of the Tangible Hydra-PEG coating. A sample of the feedback received includes:

• “Better comfort and great wettability”
• “All day comfort until removal at night”
• “Better end of day comfort and able to wear longer”
• “12 hour day was clear and moist from first hour to last hour”

A patient enthusiastically reported “They are the most comfortable lenses I have ever used!”2

SynergEyes’ President and CEO James K. Kirchner, O.D. states “We are very excited about the positive response to Tangible Hydra-PEG. With this new enhancement to the Duette and UltraHealth lines of lenses, SynergEyes continues to be a leader in the specialty contact lens arena, working to improve outcomes by providing innovative products to bring better vision to patients.”
