Air Optix contact lenses
With AIR OPTIX contact lenses, the manufacturer Ciba Vision is setting new standards in oxygen permeability.
A high circulation of oxygen is important for respiration of the retina, and enables lasting comfort over long periods. If you spend a long time working at a computer, or in air-conditioned or smoke-filled environments, then a lens with high oxygen transmissibility is particularly important. But the revolutionary innovation with AIR OPTIX contact lenses is that you can leave them in for a nap and even overnight, without waking up to sticky and dried-out eyes.
Normally, high oxygen transmissibility in contact lenses is achieved through a high water content. However, contact lenses with a high water content have the side effect of extracting the eye’s natural moisture. This quickly reduces comfort, particularly for wearers with eye’s prone to dryness. Ciba Vision has developed AIR OPTIX AQUA especially for dry eyes. The patented AIR OPTIX AQUA TriComfort Technology uses special materials to optimise moisture retention as well as offering exceptional oxygen permeability. Moreover, AIR OPTIX AQUA contact lenses have an especially smooth surface, to minimise sticking to the cornea and accumulation of deposits. AIR OPTIX AQUA contact lenses thus offer an excellent combination of high oxygen permeability and low water content.
For eyes with special requirements we stock AIR OPTIX for ASTIGMATISM and AIR OPTIX MULTIFOCAL. These models enable lens-wearers with astigmatism and presbyopia to enjoy the benefits of AIR OPTIX Technology.
The flagship product of the AIR OPTIX range is, however, the new AIR OPTIX NIGHT & DAY lenses. These are the perfect contact lenses for anyone who is tired of constantly taking out and putting in new lenses. With an oxygen transmissibility of 175Dk/t, AIR OPTIX NIGHT & DAY can be worn around the clock problem-free – with the consent of your optician or eye doctor for up to a month!
AIR OPTIX contact lenses are distinguished by their superior design which allows a stable positioning on the eye. As a result they enable constant clarity of vision. Thanks to the light blue visibility tint you’ll always find the lens in your eye and in its case. The stability of AIR OPTIX lenses means inserting and removing the lens is quick and easy, even for inexperienced users. For these and many other reasons, AIR OPTIX is a justified leader in the contact lens market.
