The rigid gas permeable centre of the SynergEyes PS lens and the soft outer skirt combine to offer a viable solution to ghosting, haloes, blurry vision and dryness in post-surgical eyes.

SynergEyes also has FDA clearance on contact lenses for the treatment of ametropia, astigmatism, keratoconus and presbyopia.
