SynergEyes, Inc., founded in 2001, recognized the need for a contact lens that would combine the superior visual quality of a rigid gas permeable lens with the comfort and ease of wear of a soft contact lens. The revolutionary SynergEyes contact lens allows patients to enjoy the best of both worlds – a stable, rigid center with high oxygen permeability that delivers consistently crisp vision and the all-day comfort of a soft lens provided by the soft outer skirt. No other contact lens currently offers these advantages to patients in the vision-correction market. Check their website for an office near you! http://www.synergeyes.com/
