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.
