Air Optix for Astigmatism are manufactured by CIBA Vision and Alcon, global leaders in the contact lens space, with over 70 years of experience.
Air Optix is a brand produced and sold by CIBA Vision and Alcon.
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.
Air Optix for Astigmatism monthly lenses are available in boxes of 3 and 6.
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 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 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.
