SynergEyes Awarded U.S. Patent
SynergEyes, Inc., the high Dk hybrid contact lens manufacturer, announced that it has received an additional patent from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. The new patent pertains to SynergEyes’ hybrid contact lens bonding technology and manufacturing processes.
The new patent complements prior patents awarded SynergEyes for its high Dk hybrid contact lens design. The patent is for a hybrid contact lens with intermediate zones that facilitate chemical bonding between the zones and the methods to manufacture. This is now the 12th patent awarded SynergEyes for its advanced hybrid contact lens technology.
Joe Collins, SynergEyes co-founder and Vice President of Manufacturing and R&D, commented, “SynergEyes, Inc. is dedicated to providing our customers with innovative technology in hybrid contact lenses. This new patent significantly enhances our intellectual property portfolio and represents highly valued strategic assets that distinguish our products in the contact lens industry.”
SynergEyes manufactures a new type of contact lens that combines two materials – a rigid gas permeable center and a soft, hydrophilic outer skirt. The result is a durable “hybrid” lens for patients seeking crisp, clear vision and the all-day comfort of a soft lens.
Incorporating patented HyperBond technology and HydrolEyes surface science, the SynergEyes lenses with FDA market-clearance include: SynergEyes A for naturally occurring ametropia, targeting patients with astigmatism, current gas permeable lens wearers, and patients demanding optimized vision; ClearKoneTM and SynergEyes KC for keratoconus; SynergEyes Multifocal for presbyopia; and SynergEyes PS lens for post-surgery and post-trauma refractive errors.
