Contact Lenses

  • Removing Synergeyes Contact Lenses & Keratoconus

    Okay….it is VERY important to understand that this lens is unlike any others that have come before it. It is truly revolutionary. With that comes different insertion and removal techniques.

  • Gas Permeable Lenses are NOT Gone!

    Some refer to them as HARD lenses. Some call them gas perms. They used to be called PMMA. This is a family of lenses that are a harder plastic than the more commonly worn soft disposable lenses.

  • Daily Disposable Contact Lenses

    Daily Disposable lenses are not what they were five years. In fact, they aren’t the same they were last year. And as of today, they aren’t the same lenses they were yesterday! This segment of the market is so underrepresented in the US. In most other modern nations, daily disposable contact lens wearers comprise more […]

  • Synergeyes Hybrid Contact Lenses

    Everyday someone asks me about the lenses. Synergeyes. I am thrilled. This lens comes in two main ‘varieties’ if you will, a single vision “A” lens and a multi-focal “MF” lens.  I have fit many people sucessfully in the A lens since its release over a year ago. I was lucky enough to be a […]
