Give your patients outstanding comfort from day 1 to day 301-3*

 

 

*Based on a clinical study with AIR OPTIX® AQUA, AIR OPTIX® for Astigmatism, and AIR OPTIX® AQUA MULTIFOCAL Contact lenses.
Based on a ProVoice Survey of ECPs from January 2019 - December 2019.

Comfort. Vision. Value.


Patients rated AIR OPTIX® plus HydraGlyde® a 9 out of 10 on initial insertion comfort4,5†

In a separate survey, 4x more patients preferred AIR OPTIX® plus HydraGlyde® over their previous two-week or monthly replacement lenses6*

*While using AOSEPT PLUS® or OPTI-FREE® PureMoist® for daily cleaning and disinfection.

†Based on average subjective rating on a scale of 1 (Poor) to 10 (Excellent) from a clinical trial of habitual AIR OPTIX AQUA contact lens wearers using AIR OPTIX  plus HydraGlyde to determine on-eye performance (n=45)

SmartShield® Technology creates an ultra-thin protective layer to:

  • Minimize the exposed silicone on the lens surface10
  • Protect lenses from irritating deposits all month long7-9
  • Protect from everyday use of cosmetics, hand creams and makeup removers12-14
Rules to follow

SmartShield® Technology designed to help provide excellent overall cholesterol deposit resistance throughout the lens.4,7-9,19
