Contact lenses use multiple approaches to reduce aberrations

By applying wavefront diagnostic technology to contact lens production, manufacturers aim to reduce patients? higher-order aberrations.

Daniele Cruz

Excerpt:

"SynergEyes W

The SynergEyes W is a wavefront-customized lens that is currently in clinical trials. SynergEyes also manufactures four lens products with Food and Drug Administration marketing clearance featuring a hybrid design that combines a high-Dk rigid gas permeable center with a soft hydrogel skirt.


Jerome A. Legerton

Jerome A. Legerton, OD, MD, MBA, FAAO, chief technology officer and executive vice president of SynergEyes, noted that, although the products with market clearance, called SynergEyes A, M, KC and PS, are not wavefront guided, they provide some control of aberrations.

?They provide some higher-order aberration correction without being a customized lens simply because the lenses have a rigid center that will neutralize any anterior corneal aberrations,? Dr. Legerton said.

The company?s wavefront-guided lens is the SynergEyes W. Dr. Legerton described the fitting technique in an interview.

?You apply one of our diagnostic lenses and do two things simultaneously; one is to measure the residual lens eye aberration, and the other is to measure the registration error,? he said. ?One must demonstrate on an individual eye that the lenses have orientational and translational stability. The nice thing about the SynergEyes product is that the hybrid lens has very little movement.?

Registration marks on the lens are captured when the aberrometry measurement is taken, Dr. Legerton said.

?In the past we could write a prescription on a prescription pad, and that could go to an alternative source for sourcing the lens,? he said. ?In this case, the practitioner can?t even write the prescription. It would take pages of code to write it. Rather, the prescription is the byproduct of both registration and aberrometry output data.?

The SynergEyes W combines the fingerprint of the lens with the registration adjustment, creating a new mathematical cutting file, he said.

?Every eye is different. This is not one-size-fits-all stuff,? he said. ?That would be like making an orthotic for your shoe and mass-producing it. It?s either for your foot or someone else?s.?





Note: Jerome A. Legerton has testified against at least one large pupil LASIK victim.

Wow,thanks for the info. I never heard of this lens. Is this the one you wear or is it in trials like the PS? The release date on the PS keeps getting pushed forward. My latest optometrist supposed to let me know when they are released.

I haven't heard anymore about SynergEyes W. I provided contact information in the above post. You might try contacting the company for an update.

Beware of Jerome Legerton.

Is Jerome Lergerton causing permanent harm to a vital sensory organ, like LASIK surgeons? Is he an unethical profiteer delivering only hype?

He was an expert witness against a large pupil LASIK victim who had an ablation zone 2mm smaller than her scotopic pupil size.

And see this comment:
Quote:
High-order aberrations can play a part in night vision problems as well. Dr. Legerton cites evidence in the literature that aberrations are more likely to cause haloes than the size of the treatment zone relative to pupil size.
