Features and Benefits of Air Optix Aqua Multifocal Contact Lenses
A 30% lower contact angle (compared to Air Optix) increases wettability.
For additional wearing comfort, a unique wetting agent (with hydrophilic properties) lets the eyelid easily glide over the lens.
The unique Aqua Moisture Systam allows up to 5 times more oxygen through the lens than traditional hydrogel soft multifocal lenses. The result: Whiter, healthy looking eyes.
Air Optix Aqua Multifocal provide a smooth transition from close-up to distance vision in real world situations.
An aspheric back surface design provides optimal centration and excellent fitting characteristics.
The plasma treated lens surface resists deposits and a unique moisture agent binds with the lens surface to create a more silky layer.
