A woman with a contact lensGetting the right contact lenses for your eyes can make all the difference in the world. Your primary concerns are comfort and vision quality, and thankfully there are many options when it comes to the right contacts for your needs. Even people who have hard-to-fit eyes can still benefit from contacts thanks to the latest advances in eye care.

The team at our La Jolla vision correction center would like to consider SynergEyes UltraHealth hybrid contact lenses. These state-of-the-art contacts can work wonders with many patients.

What Is Keratoconus?

Keratoconus is a bulging outward of the eyes. Rather than having round or spherical eyes, keratoconus causes the eyes to become conical in shape. This can have a severe impact on your vision. For advanced keratoconus, minimally invasive surgery or a corneal transplant may be recommended. However, the use of special contacts can improve the shape of the cornea and enhance vision in the process.

About Hybrid Contact Lenses

Hybrid contact lenses are a new step forward in treating keratoconus and other kinds of vision issues. In the middle of this large-diameter hybrid contact lens is a hard, gas permeable center. Surrounding this central portion of the contact is a soft portion that allows the contact to sit comfortably on the eye.

There are many different kinds of hybrid contacts out there, each using this basic structure but offering their own unique advantages.

SynergEyes UltraHealth Hybrid Contact Lenses

SynergEyes UltraHealth hybrid contact lenses are contacts that are specifically designed for people with keratoconus and irregular cornea conditions. Thanks to SynergEyes UltraHealth hybrid contact lenses, you can see clearly without wearing glasses, and you can do so comfortably throughout the entire day.

The Benefits of SynergEyes Contacts

The benefits of SynergEyes UltraHealth hybrid contact lenses are many. This include the following:

  • Excellent Vision Quality – Hybrid contact lenses have the clarity and overall vision quality that only gas permeable contacts can provide.

  • Comfort That Lasts All Day – Thanks to the soft portion of these large-diameter contacts, you will not experience issues with discomfort while you are wearing these hybrid contacts.

  • Your Eyes Won't Dry – These hybrid contacts allow your eyes to breathe and also allows tears and moisture to circulate throughout your day. Your eyes will not dry out and the contacts will also keep debris out of the eyes.

  • UV Protection – In addition to comfort and clarity, these hybrid contacts have a UV blocker to protect your eyes from the effects of the sun.

Ideal Candidates for SynergEyes Contacts

Good candidates for SynergEyes UltraHealth hybrid contact lenses are people who suffer from early, moderate, and advanced keratoconus. They should be in good overall health and able to tolerate contacts. Severe issues with keratoconus may necessitate an advanced treatment, though these considerations will be determined during an in-person consultation.

  • Ecstacia
