A monthly silicone hydrogel contact lens that is approved for up to 30 nights’ continuous wear1*

Who should wear AIR OPTIX NIGHT&DAY AQUA?  

For patients who:

  • Work in environments where extended wear is important2
  • Want to nap in their lenses during the day
  • Choose to sleep in their lenses for up to 30 nights continuously*1
Features Benefits
Highest level of oxygen transmissibility of any currently available contact lens1

High breathability ensures maximum oxygen transmission for white healthy looking eyes1**

Approved for up to 30 nights continuous wear1*

For patients who lead busy lives, and nap or sleep in their contact lenses2

SmartShieldTM technology

Ultra-smooth lens surface designed to defend against daily deposits for comfortable wear all day long3,4

Superior lipid deposit resistanceoffers consistent comfort from day 1 to day 303,4,5

Oxygen Transmissibility and extended wear explained

  • Lotrafilcon A is a state-of-the-art material that offers the highest level of oxygen transmissibility of any available soft contact lens1**
  • In a three-year clinical study, wearers of AIR OPTIX NIGHT&DAY AQUA experienced improvement in signs and symptoms of corneal health versus low Dk/t lenses6

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 lens4,8
  • Tear film de-stabilisation may occur with lipid deposition, this can reduce lens wettability and impact lens comfort9,10
