AIR OPTIX® contact lenses are the creation of Alcon which is a brand of Novartis. They are created through extensive research using one of the top technologies, known as the Ultra-Smooth Surface Technology. They create a thin protective layer of moisture over the eye, reflecting and repelling anything that tries to come in contact with the eyes, such as grit, dirt, dust etc. This is why AIR OPTIX contacts feel comfortable and soft throughout the day, instead of getting dry and irritating.
Apart from the Ultra-Smooth Surface Technology, the AIR OPTIX contact lenses are created with advanced Breathability. They are created with a material that allows 5 times the normal amount of oxygen to reach the eyes, keeping them irritation free and provides anti-redness effect, ensuring comfortable wear throughout the day.
There is a wide range of AIR OPTIX lenses available created keeping in mind the different eye problems that people commonly face. Let’s take a look at each of the type of lenses available by AIR OPTIX.
AIR OPTIX aqua is created using silicone hydrogel that makes wearing contact lenses exceptionally comfortable for day long wear. They are created with advanced wear technology to allow them to be worn continuously for 6 nights and 7 days, without having to be replaced or removed even at night. They take the contact lens experience to the next level, as you only have to remove them once a week for cleaning before placing them back in again.
These lenses feel so natural that many people actually forget that they are wearing them until it is time to remove and clean them. This is due to the fact that they are created using the TriComfort technology which ensures that the wearers never face the three most commonly experienced issues with contact lenses.
These three problems are the buildup of protein and grit which makes the lens experience uncomfortable due to the resulting irritation. Its oxygen absorbing capacity keeps the eyes looking and feeling fresh all day and all week long as well. Additionally the comfortable material with which they are created makes the lenses feel light on the eyes.
Another common eye issue that requires lenses is astigmatism. This is a slight difference in the shape of the eyes that causes blurred vision. This is not a disease but just a common defect of the eye which can easily be corrected by using contact lenses. However the contact lenses for astigmatism are not the same as the ordinary contacts; these need to be created specially according to the defect.
This is why AIR OPTIX® for Astigmatism, are created with two special qualities; that provide the wearer nonstop comfort and moisture throughout the day, while correcting the blurred vision for crisp and crystal clear sight.
AIR OPTIX® AQUA Multifocal contact lenses are created to provide lasting comfort and clear vision for people with multifocal issues such as nearsightedness as well as far sightedness. They provide smooth vision transition providing clear view at any distance.
AIR OPTIX® NIGHT & DAY® AQUA contact lenses are exactly what the name suggests. They are specially created to be worn at night times during sleep, not requiring them to be removed prior to sleep or during bath times etc. They can be worn throughout the day at all times. They provide the same extraordinary comfort as the AIR OPTIX aqua with the added comfort of continuous wear.
