We are happy to be able to bring you the newest in Hybrid lens technology. The Synergyes Duette and Ultrahealth lenses are great for people requiring a rigid contact lens due to corneal irregularity, or high astigmatism, but have been unable to tolerate the rigid lenses over long days.
SynergEyes hybrid contact lenses transform vision for patients with astigmatism, presbyopia and irregular cornea conditions. Since the first generation of hybrid lenses came to market in 2005, the company has continued to develop and deliver advancements in hybrid contact lens technologies. Generation 2 lenses combine new high-Dk (more breathable) materials with more comfortable, vision-optimized designs.

We were one of the first offices in Georgia to have this truly breakthrough product. It is one of the most breathable lenses available and has the highest water content of any lens ever made. It is a completely new lens technology that has done wonders for people that have tried contact lenses in the past, but were unable to continue with them due to dryness and discomfort issues. Now they are also available in a Bifocal/Multifocal option! Click on the picture above for a video about this unique lens.
This state of the art 'bifocal' contact lens provides a healthy option with superior comfort for patients needing reading help. They have quickly become the industry leader in multifocal lens fits. We keep diagnostic lenses in the office to make trying them as convenient as possible. Come in and see if these lenses are appropriate for you so you can be more free from the dependency of reading glasses.

Dr Barnes is excited to be able to offer the latest in contact lens technology. While not needed for everyone, the Jupiter Scleral Rigid Gas Permeable lenses are just another in the arsenal to ensure patients have every available option regarding contact lens fitting. The new Essilor Jupiter Scleral lens series lenses are specifically meant for very difficult contact lens fits- including very bad Keratoconus patients, post-surgical irregularities, trauma cases that have left the cornea scarred- just to name a few. They have also been found to be very helpful in fitting patients that have severely dry eyes. Duke University has had great success with these types of patients. If you have difficulty with your current lenses and have been recommended to have corneal surgery (transplant) in order to see better due to keratoconus- you need to try these lenses before surgery! If you are a current patient already wearing the lenses, clicking the Jupiter Scleral RGP lens logo above will take you to the 'insertion and removal' video.
