Here at Kirkwood Eye Associates we are proud to announce that we are the first practice in St. Louis to receive the new SimplifEyes daily disposable, soft contact lenses by SynergEyes. This revolutionary soft lens is the first of its kind and promises superior vision and comfort thanks to the inclusion of Tangible molecules imbedded in the contact lens matrix.
Contact lens dryness and discomfort is the number one reason for contact lens drop out. Soft lenses “steal” our tears in order to keep their shape, making patients with even the mildest dry eyes symptomatic at the end of the day. Tangible molecules effectively bind water molecules and retain them within the lens matrix for much longer than standard soft contact lens materials. This allows for all day comfort and visual stability, even in those who have failed other types of soft contact lenses due to discomfort.
As a specialty contact lens practice, we have used Tangible coatings with tremendous success on rigid gas permeable lenses since the technology was introduced two years ago. This is the first soft contact lens product to incorporate this revolutionary molecule.
Currently, SimplifEyes lenses are only available to treat near sightedness (up tp -6.00) and far sightedness (up to +4.00). They do not offer powers to correct astigmatism, though this could be an option in the near future. The lenses are “single-use” and should be disposed of after one day of wear. They are not approved for overnight wear. They are priced less than other premium daily disposable lenses.
If you are a current Kirkwood Eye Associates contact lens patient who has been seen for a contact lens evaluation within 12 months and you are interested in trying SimplifEyes lenses, contact our office for a free 5 day trial pack (if your prescription is within the current available parameters). If you are not a patient or have not had a contact lens evaluation in the past 12 months, call for a fitting today and receive your free trial. Please contact our office with any questions.
