Carlsbad, CA (October 10, 2018) – SynergEyes, Inc., the worldwide leader in hybrid contact lens technology, is pleased to announce that the Tangible Hydra-PEG coating is now available in Canada. The lubricious “breakthrough polymer coating”1 developed by Tangible Science was launched in the U.S. in 2017. Due to the positive response to the coating, Canadian practitioners and patients can now also experience the benefits of Tangible Hydra-PEG on both Duette and UltraHealth hybrid lenses.
During a pre-launch program in the US, 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 2017, eye care professionals across the United States have been successfully prescribing Duette and UltraHealth with Tangible Hydra-PEG for their astigmatic, presbyopic and irregular cornea 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 Bob Ferrigno states “We are very excited that we can now bring the lubricious Tangible Hydra-PEG coating to Canada. With this enhancement to the Duette and UltraHealth lines of hybrid 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.”
