There are over 106 million presbyopes (up to age 54) in U.S., Germany and Japan, alone.2 And of those presbyopes, only

  • 57% (U.S.), 20% (Germany) and 9% (Japan) have ever heard of presbyopia2
  • 18% (U.S.), 20% (Germany) and 9% (Japan) are aware that multifocal contact lenses are an option for them2
  • 4% (U.S.), 3% (Germany) and less than 1% (Japan) have ever had a conversation with their eye care professional about multifocal contact lenses2

AIR OPTIX® AQUA Multifocal contact lenses address patients’ vision issues giving them crisp, clear vision at all distances, near through far. And they offer great comfort, wettability and oxygen transmission
