If you have keratoconus, a progressive eye condition in which the cornea thins and becomes cone-shaped and irregular rather than spherical like a normal cornea, your need to find a solution that can correct blurry, distorted vision, in a comfortable, healthy and convenient way is extremely critical.

We are very proud to announce that Dr. Christopher Shiomos has been selected as one of 100 practitioners in the United States chosen to begin prescribing a revolutionary new kind of contact lens: a brand new hybrid contact lens design by SynergEyes called ClearKone.

ClearKone utilizes revolutionary hybrid technology, combining 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. No other contact lens currently provides these benefits.

Whether you have an early, moderate or advanced stage of keratoconus, there is finally a custom-designed contact lens offering the advantages of soft and rigid contact lenses without any of the disadvantages.

If you are currently wearing traditional soft or rigid contact lenses, or if you are wearing both at the same time, changes are you have experienced….
• Poor, unstable vision
• Discomfort
• Contact lens dislodge
• Decreased contact lens wearing time
• Light sensitivity and glare
• Inconvenience
• Poor eye health

Now is the time to upgrade your contact lens experience. Please call our Brittonfield office to schedule your ClearKone contact lens appointment today at (315) 432 - 0555.
