Optimal comfort - Air Optix offers comfort and convenience, allowing up to six times more oxygen to reach your eyes than hydrogel-based contact lenses.

Astigmatism optimised - Specifically designed for wearers with a prescription for astigmatism, improving the quality of vision.

Flexibility in use - The amount of oxygen reaching the eye means that wearers can wear Air Optix for Astigmatism lenses as extended wear for up 6 nights, though you will need to confirm with your optician first.

Added protection - Unique plasma surface that retains moisture and resists deposits for consistent comfort throughout use.

Hydration - A good choice for lens wearers who suffer from dry eyes.

Convenience and reusable - Air Optix for Astigmatism can be worn for up to 30 days as long as they are removed, cleaned and stored each night.

Enhanced reliability - Less than 5° of oscillation when blinking combined with a wide optic zone for top visual acuity during the entirety of their lifetime.

Air Optix for Astigmatism are monthly contact lenses designed for comfort, and to keep your eyes hydrated for as long as possible.

Recommended For

  • Wearers with an astigmatism prescription.

Type of Lens:

Air Optix for Astigmatism are a monthly-use toric contact lens. They can be worn for up to 30 days as long as they are removed, cleaned and stored correctly each night after a day of use. These contact lenses can be worn as extended wear for up to 6 consecutive nights if required, but you will need approval from your optician.


CIBA Vision Air Optix Toric contact lenses are made with Lotrafilcon B. Lotrafilcon B is a silicone hydrogel with a water content of 33%, which offers increased comfort and hydration throughout use.


Air Optix Contact Lenses for Astigmatism are made using several technologies to improve performance:

SmartShield technology - A unique technology that provides an ultra-smooth surface that repels deposits for maximum comfort.

Precision Balance 8|4 - A design that works with the natural action of the eyelid to provide stability when blinking, reduce interaction with the lower eyelid and maximise oxygen flow.

TriComfort technology - Maintains breathability and moisture-retention thanks to the smooth lens surface. TriComfort technology utilises a unique plasma layer, which creates a Hydrophyllic environment, which in turn resists lipids and deposit build-up.

Pack Sizes:

Air Optix for Astigmatism monthly lenses are available in boxes of 3 and 6.

Availability for Myopia, Hypermetropia and Presbyopia:

If you have myopia (short-sight) or hypermetropia (long-sight), CIBA Vision/Alcon offers Air Optix Aqua contact lenses.

For help with Presbyopia, Air Optix Aqua Multifocal lenses are available.


Not sure if Air Optix for Astigmatism lenses are right for you? Then why not try an alternative brand?

Before you do try an alternative, you must consult your optician to ensure both their suitability and that they are the appropriate fit, as each brand has a different design and fitting guide.

Air Optix plus HydraGlyde for Astigmatism

Air Optix plus HydraGlyde for Astigmatism work in a similar way to Air Optix for Astigmatism, but also use HydraGlyde Moisture Matrix technology, which helps the lenses to retain water for longer and enhance comfort. Air Optix plus HydraGlyde for Astigmatism also use SmartShield Technology to prevent dirt deposits and protein build-ups.

Biofinity Toric

Biofinity Toric lenses are monthly use, but retain the high levels of comfort you expect from daily contacts. With advanced lens design, Biofinity Toric offer support for those with astigmatism. Biofinity Toric lenses utilise Aquaform technology to increase oxygen flow to your eyes.


How Long Can I Wear Air Optix for Astigmatism?

You can wear Air Optix for Astigmatism for up to 30 days, though each lens needs to be removed and cleaned overnight. It is possible to sleep while wearing Air Optix for Astigmatism for up to 6 nights, but you must have this approved by your optician before doing so.

Does Air Optix Have Coloured Contacts for Astigmatism?

Air Optix colour contact lenses are not available for users with a prescription for astigmatism.

Air Optix for Astigmatism lenses are toric.

  • By Aren on 07 August 2019 I've been using Air Optix for astigmatism for just over a year now, and I think they're the bee's knees. I suffer with dry eyes during the summer months, and these are great for that - they allow the eye to breathe and for oxygen to permeate. They're a little on the thicker side, which took me a few days to acclimatise to, but now I don't even know they're there. They sit well in place, which is so important for toric lenses, so no shifting around. These work for me and I totally recommend them.

  • By David Stell on 18 June 2019 Received my new contacts, excellent quality and value.
  • By Lynne on 18 June 2019 I say they are excellent. They suit my eyes perfectly.
  • By Christine Wilkinson on 11 June 2019 Have used these lenses for a few years and never had any problems, service is good.
