Tensile Tests of SynergEyes Hybrid Duette Contact Lens to Assess Junction of RGP and SiHy 

The purpose of the study was to evaluate the bond strength at the junction of the RGP and SiHy skirt of a SynergEyes Duette hybrid contact lens by measuring its tensile strength. The junction between the RPG and the SiHy skirt includes a proprietary HyperBond® treatment.

Some key highlights:

  • Twenty-one (21) samples of SynergEyes Duette lens design were tested. The results show that the junction of the Duette hybrid lens does not separate.
  • Maximum load and elongation were measured.  The average maximum load to stretch the lenses was 8.5 Newtons (N).
  • The tensile tests of the lens samples indicated the lenses could withstand approximately 8.5 times the force applied by a finger during cleaning.
