AIR OPTIX® for ASTIGMATISM

Description 

Monthly disposable silicone hydrogel contact lenses that correct astigmatism and offer outstanding stability and fit success with our unique Precision Balance 8|4TM Design.1

Who should wear AIR OPTIX for ASTIGMATISM?  

For patients who:

  • Want monthly toric contact lenses that offer stable and consistent vision1
  • Expect consistent comfort from day 1 to day 302
  • Are looking for a cost effective / full time wear option versus daily disposable lenses
Features Benefits
Precision Balance 8|4 Design

Less than 5° of oscillation with blink for reliable, consistent visual acuity1

Wide optic zone for excellent visual acuity for consistent vision from day 1 to day 303,4

SmartShieldTM technology

Ultra-smooth lens surface designed to defend against daily deposits for comfortable wear all day long2

Excellent lipid deposit resistance offering consistent comfort from day 1 to day 302,5

Precision Balance 8|4 Technology 

  • Two points of stability that work with the natural action of the eye lid to provide stability when blinking, minimise interaction with the lower eyelid and maximise oxygen transmissibility at 6 o’clock
  • Three scribe marks for easy observation of lens position
  • Outstanding stability, resulting in 99% of these lenses having acceptable or optimal fit at dispensing1
     

SmartShield technology

  • AIR OPTIX SmartShield technology creates a hydrophilic environment that delivers better lipid deposit resistance than any other 2-week or monthly silicone hydrogel lens5,6
  • Tear film de-stabilisation may occur with lipid deposition, this can reduce lens wettability and impact lens comfort7,8
