Duette is the second generation silicone hydrogel hybrid contact lens with new hybrid technology. This technology combines a rigid gas permeable center and a soft outer skirt, presenting an alternative to soft toric contact lenses. It corrects farsightedness, nearsightedness, astigmatism, and deliver clear, high definition vision even at night. The Duette lens, which is approved by the FDA, incorporates never-before-available materials for both the RGP center and the soft lens skirt. Moreover, a patent-pending surface treatment, called HealthyEyes, increases lens wettability and resists protein deposits in order to maximize comfort.
The innermost rigid gas permeable region of the new hybrid lenses
• supplies high oxygen permeability.
• blocks damaging UV rays.
The surrounding skirt of soft silicone hydrogel material
• holds 32% water.
• features high oxygen permeability for optimal eye condition and all day comfort provided by a soft lens.
The high modulus MaxVu TM RGP has a Dk of 130 and class II UV blocker integrated, while the high-Dk, low modulus silicone hydrogel skirt has a Dk of 84 and is 32% water.
Duette eliminates soft toric lens rotation problems like blur, inconsistent vision, and less-than-optimal night vision, since it is rotationally symmetrical and offers corneal astigmatism correction without inconsistent axis shift by using an optimized lacrimal film to reduce aberrations and improve visual performance.
Duette is currently available in sphere powers of +4.00 D to -12.00D and is offered in five base curves and three skirt curves. The lens is approved to correct up to 6.00 diopters of corneal astigmatism.
