Less drynessSee more

  • Lens surface treatment and water content affects lens dryness.
  • A three-year clinical study (worn up to 30 nights; replaced on a monthly basis) demonstrated significant reductions in dryness—reductions that were sustained over the three years—during the day and at the end of the day with lotrafilcon A contact lenses.8,9
AIR OPTIX® NIGHT & DAY® AQUA contact lenses reduced the dryness baseline over 36 months
