In2Eyes is a provider of Hybrid Contact Lenses: Hybrid contact lenses are the latest and most advanced option available in contact lenses specifically designed for keratoconus, astigmatism and irregular cornea patients. They have a combination of hard centre with a soft skirt for a much more comfortable fit and feel than either hard or soft contact lenses.
Keratoconus is primarily treated with contact lenses because glasses cannot to visually correct the irregular form of the cornea. Surgical treatment options are also available and are typically used when contact lens wear is no longer possible.
What Is A Hybrid Contact Lens?
A hybrid contact lens combines a Gas Permeable (GP) or “hard” lens) centre with a soft skirt to give you the clear, crisp vision of a “hard” lens and the comfort and ease-of-wear of a soft lens. Hybrids combine the best of both worlds: the crisp vision of a high-oxygen rigid gas permeable (RGP) contact lens with the all-day comfort and convenience of a soft lens.
Hybrid contact lenses are a better choice over soft contact lenses for patients who have Keratoconus, Astigmatism or Irregular Cornea as they can be tailored for the perfect fit to each individual. Hybrid contacts retain their shape better than soft contact lenses which results in crisper and more consistent vision.
Hybrid contact lenses clean and disinfect easily, don’t dehydrate, are easier to handle, and last longer than soft lenses. They offer excellent eye health: because they don’t contain water like soft lenses do, they resist deposits and are less likely than soft contacts to harbor bacteria.
Who Should Use Hybrid Contact Lenses?
Hybrids are specifically designed to restore vision to patients with the many types and stages of keratoconus. Because the lens design vaults over the cornea, there’s minimal risk of corneal scarring, making hybrid lenses a healthy treatment option for keratoconus. In addition, the soft skirt of the hybrid design helps to center the contact lens over the visual axis regardless of where the cone is located on the cornea or how large it is, thereby decreasing visual distortions and providing superior vision. The hybrid design also prevents dirt from getting under the lens and will not pop out unexpectedly. No other contact lens available today can provide all of these benefits in a single product.
At In2Eyes we take the time ensure you will be fully comfortable with contact lens preparation, cleaning and insertion. Your Hybrid Contact lens will be custom fit for your prescription as well as the shape and size of your eye.
Fitting The Hybrid Contact Lens
At In2Eyes, we use sophisticated machinery to map your eye topography which enables us to better align the back surface of the lens with the cornea. By measuring the exact shape of your cornea we can prescribe lenses with the curvature, size, and corrective power that suit your particular eyes.
The two most common type of Hybrid lenses are Ultrahealth and Duette HD. Duette HD’s are available in single vision or multifocal designs.
