(PRESS RELEASE) CARLSBAD, CA — SynergEyes Inc., which makes hybrid contact lens technology, announces its licensing agreement with Tangible Science LLC.

The alliance enables SynergEyes to offer Tangible Hydra-PEG, a “breakthrough polymer coating,” to practices and patients. SynergEyes received FDA clearance for Tangible Hydra-PEG in August, and the lubricious coating is now available on Duette and Duette Progressive lenses.

Tangible Science’s president and CEO, Vic McCray, MD, said: “Tangible Hydra-PEG is designed to solve the problem of contact lens discomfort by increasing wettability, surface water retention, tear breakup time, lubricity and deposition resistance. The positive experiences of those already wearing Duette with Tangible Hydra-PEG demonstrates the value of the coating.”

SynergEyes’ president and CEO, James K. Kirchner, OD, stated: “We are very excited about our partnership with Tangible Science. Tangible Hydra-PEG will now be available on Duette, the industry-leading hybrid lens for astigmatism and presbyopia. With this new addition to the Duette line, SynergEyes continues to be a leader in the specialty contact lens arena, providing innovative products to bring better vision to patients.”

Duette and Duette Progressive with Tangible Hydra-PEG are now available in the United States, and will be available internationally in 2017.
