Historically, creating a lens with the optics of a rigid contact lens and the comfort of a soft contact lens has been fraught with difficulty. New technology, however has enabled us to create a hybrid lens that would greatly benefit people who suffer from corneal problems that prevent them from using conventional contact lenses. This paper describes a fitting guide for the new SynergEyes A hybrid contact lens based on a two part series of on-eye fitting trials.
