AIR OPTIX plus Hydraglyde Multifocal

Innovative Precision Profile™ Design created for predictable, seamless vision

Precision profile

Smooth progression of power gradients for clear vision from near, to intermediate, to distance


Center-near design works synergistically with the eye’s natural pupillary function.3

  • Unique optical zone size optimized for a wide range of pupil sizes
  • Improve near vision without compromising distance
Seeing near to far


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

  • Minimize the exposed silicone
  • Protect lenses from irritating deposits all month long
  • Support a stable tear film and maintain wettability

SmartShield™ Technology helps deliver superior overall lipid deposit resistance throughout the lens.6,7

HydraGlyde™ Moisture Matrix Technology surrounds lenses in long-lasting surface moisture to help keep the lens surface hydrated9,10

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

*Based on in vitro testing on sphere lenses soaked in phosphate-buffered saline solution for 16 hours; n=10 lenses analyzed per brand. + p<0.05 vs. all comparator lenses.

To help your customers get the most from their contact lenses, recommend AOSEPT™ PLUS HydraGlyde™ and OPTI-FREE™ Puremoist™
