SynergEyes

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!

The Stevens Johnson Syndrome Foundation (Julie Foundation for allergic drug reactions) is a non-profit organization. The purpose of the foundation is to provide the public and medical communities with information on adverse allergic drug reactions.

Our goal is to make the public aware of adverse reactions, so that a quick diagnosis may be made and the offending drug stopped as soon as possible.
