The Duette Multifocal hybrid contact lens by SynergEyes will be available nationwide soon, with the rollout beginning this month. The company says the Duette Multifocal is the first silicone hydrogel hybrid contact lens designed just for people with presbyopia.
The lens has a simultaneous vision design for true binocular vision whether you’re looking near, far, or in-between. It also features what SynergEyes calls MultiPro2 Technology, which is a near center aspheric add zone plus a distance asphere. The aim is to provide real progressive vision correction, resembling that of progressive eyeglasses.
The Duette Multifocal has a gas permeable center with a Dk of 130 and a silicone hydrogel skirt with a Dk of 84. Its optimized lacrimal layer is designed to reduce aberration at the same time it corrects corneal astigmatism. Previously, SynergEyes announced that eye care practitioners said its hybrid contact lenses were providing better astigmatism correction than that of toric soft contact lenses.
