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.

Two Unique Technologies

 

SmartShield® Technology helps provide excellent overall cholesterol deposit resistance throughout the lens4-7

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

  • Minimise the exposed silicone on the lens surface10
  • Protect lenses from irritating deposits4-7
  • Protect from everyday use of cosmetics, hand creams and makeup removers11,12
Rules to follow

SmartShield® Technology designed to help provide excellent cholesterol deposit resistance throughout the lens.4-7,18

HydraGlyde™ Moisture Matrix Technology surrounds lenses in long-lasting surface moisture to help keep the lens surface hydrated9,14

 

Retains longer-lasting lens surface moisture after 16 hours of simulated wear
Mean time to lens surface moisture breakup

*Based on an in vitro study wherein lens wettability was measured over time using the iDDrop System (p<0.01).

Precision Balance 8|4® Design is engineered to work with the eyes’ blinking mechanism, to keep lenses stabilised8*

 

Rotational stability in around 30 seconds17

 

Scribe marks at 3, 6 and 9 o’clock

designed for flexible lens observation at multiple angles to ensure a precise fit8*

 

5° of oscillation or less

with blink for consistent visual acuity8*

 

Wide optic zone

designed to provide good visual acuity8*

 

Unique Precision Balance 8/4® lens design

provides stability throughout 30 days of wear, a comfortable fit under the eyelid, and maximised Dk/t at 6 o’clock*
