SynergEyes Hybrid Contact Lenses Provide a Vision Solution for Post-LASIK Patients
Date:4/25/2008

SAN DIEGO, April 25 /PRNewswire/ -- SynergEyes, Inc., of Carlsbad, CA, recently launched a revolutionary hybrid contact lens designed for people who need further vision correction after undergoing refractive vision surgery. SynergEyes(R) PS (post-surgical) is also designed for patients who have experienced some type of corneal trauma or suffer from certain degenerative vision conditions.

Every year, millions of people undergo LASIK or other types of vision correction surgery to restore vision and eliminate the need for glasses or contact lenses. But according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), approximately 5 percent of LASIK patients are dissatisfied with their outcome and experience post-operative conditions like eye pain, blurred or double vision and difficulty driving at night.

Because LASIK permanently alters the shape of the eye, traditional contact lenses and glasses often cannot provide the additional vision correction needed. This is why SynergEyes has developed a revolutionary contact lens designed specifically to address the technical challenges of restoring vision to these patients offering them consistent, predictable vision, even at night.

Approved for marketing by the FDA, SynergEyes(R) PS hybrid contact lenses combine two materials -- a rigid gas permeable center with a soft lens outer skirt. The "hybrid" design bonds a "hard" and "soft" contact lens together resulting in a one-of-a-kind vision correction option that provides crisp, clear vision for surgically altered corneas in a comfortable, healthy contact lens.

"The SynergEyes(R) PS lens has proven to be a safe, effective and comfortable lens for the restoration of post-surgical vision loss," says Dr. Edward Boshnick of Miami, FL. "It has become my first choice lens for the treatment of patients who have lost quality vision and comfort due to refractive and corneal transplant surgery."

Until being fit with SynergEyes(R) PS, Gabriel Meneses, a patient of Dr. Boshnick, had been struggling daily with post-LASIK side effects like blurry vision, ghosting and migraines after having the surgery six years ago. His vision could not be adequately corrected with eyeglasses or other contact lenses. "Dr Boshnick gave me the opportunity to be one of the first to try the new SynergEyes(R) PS lens ... all I can say is what a difference! As for vision quality, this lens has definitely offered me the best I've experienced so far."

Incorporating patented HyperBond(TM) technology and HydrolEyes(TM) surface science, the SynergEyes contact lenses with FDA market clearance include SynergEyes(R) A for naturally occurring ametropia, targeting patients with astigmatism, current gas permeable lens wearers, and patients demanding optimized vision; the SynergEyes(R) KC for keratoconus, the SynergEyes(R) Multifocal lens for presbyopia and the SynergEyes(R) PS for post-surgery and post trauma refractive errors.
