Study to Evaluate the Clinical Performance of SynergEyes A2 Hybrid Contact Lenses
A 180 Day, Multicenter Study to Evaluate the Clinical Performance of SynergEyes A2 Hybrid Contact Lenses for Daily Wear Use in the Correction of Refractive Error With or Without Astigmatism in Non-diseased Eyes
This is a multicenter study to evaluate the clinical performance of the SynergEyes A2 lens in patients with refractive errors with or without astigmatism.
Hybrid contact lenses have been previously shown to be a safe and effective method to correct refractive errors with and without astigmatism. The hybrid contact lens design may provide greater visual acuity and comfort than other soft or rigid gas permeable (RGP) lenses currently available. The purpose of this study is to confirm the design of the SynergEyes A2 lens by evaluating clinical performance and, if necessary, modify certain lens parameters in order to optimize lens performance. Objective and subjective parameters will be used to evaluate the lens.

  • Subject is aphakic or pseudophakic
  • Subject has ocular or systemic disease such as, but not limited to, anterior uveitis or iritis (past or present), glaucoma, Sjogren's Syndrome, lupus erythematosus, scleroderma, keratoconus, post surgical corneal irregularity or type II diabetes
  • Subject is using ocular medications for any reason or systemic medications which might interfere with contact lens wear
  • A known history of corneal hypoesthesia (reduced corneal sensitivity)
  • Slit lamp findings that would contraindicate contact lens wear, including, but not limited to:

    • Evidence of corneal ulcer, corneal infiltrates or fungal infections
    • Corneal scars within the visual axis

    • Seborrhoeic eczema or seborrhoeic conjunctivitis
    • History of papillary conjunctivitis that has interfered with lens wear or a current condition of Grade 2 or greater
  • Clinically significant (Grade 3 or 4) anterior segment abnormalities or any infection of the eye, lids or associated structures
