Carlsbad, CA (Nov.19, 2014) – SynergEyes, Inc., the worldwide
leader in hybrid contact lens technology, has expanded its doctor resources with
the release of eight video tutorials for Duette® Progressive – the astigmatic lens for
astigmatic presbyopes. The videos, each only a few minutes in length, are
available through the “Video Tutorials” link on the homepage of
Providing information to assist dispensing and optimize the fit of the
Duette Progressive lens, the step-by-step tutorials cover: lens design, lens
calculator, fitting guide, lens dispensing, optimizing fit, optimizing near vision,
optimizing distance vision and optimizing patient compliance.
The videos address the vision optimization made possible by the recent
expansion of lens parameters to 0.1mm increments, which facilitate even more
precise alignment fitting, creating optimal centration and clear, stable vision at all
distances for even more patients.
“Doctors tell us they desire more training and value tutorial videos. As a
doctor-centric company, that’s why we’ve invested in these highly detailed
tutorials,” said SynergEyes’ President and CEO James K. Kirchner, O.D.
Combining exceptional GP optics with SoftCushionTM comfort technology,
Duette Progressive provides crisp, clear vision for astigmatic presbyopes. A
patient’s initial pair of Duette Progressive lenses can be designed empirically
based on a refraction and corneal curvature measurements.
Utilizing a near center aspheric add zone in combination with a distance
asphere, Duette Progressive provides a seamless progression of powers from
distance to near, giving presbyopes GP vision at all distances along with soft lens
comfort. With a choice of three add powers to give the practitioner greater control
over the visual outcome, Duette Progressive is a go-to lens for presbyopes with
astigmatism and is also an ideal choice for moderate to advanced presbyopes
who no longer get acceptable near vision from soft multifocal contact lenses.
The lens also features an 84 Dk silicone hydrogel skirt around the 130 Dk center,
and includes UV-blocking materials.
Practitioners report successful outcomes with very few follow-up visits
when empirically fitting the Duette Progressive lens, said Dr. Kirchner.
