Contact lenses are a popular corrective eyewear option because they are comfortable and convenient to use. Thanks to ongoing innovations in lens technology, contact lenses are now available in different materials to suit the wide-ranging needs and preferences of patients.
Hybrid contact lenses are a good example of a remarkable lens innovation. Read on as The Eye Doctors, your leading provider of eyeglasses and other eye care products, discusses the benefits they offer.
What Makes Hybrid Contact Lenses a Great Option?
The Eye Doctors are proud to offer hybrid contact lenses from SynergEyes®, which combine the best features of hard and soft contact lenses. They have a rigid center that provides sharp vision, as well ultraviolet (UV) protective features to reduce your risk of developing corneal sunburn and other UV-related vision problems.
The edges of hybrid contact lenses are made of soft silicone plastic for enhanced visual comfort all day long. They also come with a new Tangible™ Hydra-PEG coating that helps reduce the feeling of dryness in your eyes. These lenses’ patented dual material design allows optimum exchange of oxygen in your eyes, preventing any ocular complications.
Are Hybrid Contact Lenses Right for Me?
Hybrid contact lenses can correct many vision problems, especially “hard-to-fit” eye conditions. The Duette® variety, for example, is equipped with advanced technology that allows the lenses to correct vision errors caused by astigmatism. As a result, you’ll have sharp eyesight and better viewing ease when looking at both near and distant objects.
If you have keratoconus, a condition that occurs when your cornea has a cone-like shape, your eye doctor may recommend our UltraHealth® hybrid contact lenses. These are same size as regular soft lenses, making them easy to apply. They are also strategically designed to stay secure on your cornea.
