FAQs

    This comes down to the individual. Contact lenses have been a popular alternative to glasses for decades. Moreover, there have been massive strides in contact lens technology in recent years. Speak to your eye care professional for advice and recommendations.

    The materials used depend on the type of contact lens. Some soft contacts are made of hydrophilic ‘water-loving’ polymers called hydrogels. Others are made from newer silicone hydrogel, which allows a high amount of oxygen to travel through the lens.

    This depends upon the modality you are wearing. Daily disposable contact lenses are developed to last from application in the morning until removal in the mid to late evening. Monthly contact lenses should only be worn for a maximum of 1 month. In all cases, we advise wearers to carefully follow the recommendations as advised by your eye care professional.

    Based on a clinical study with AIR OPTIX® AQUA, AIR OPTIX® for Astigmatism, and AIR OPTIX® AQUA MULTIFOCAL Contact lenses.
