Air Optix Aqua features SmartShield technology for a smoother lens.

Air Optix Aqua from Alcon Inc. are designed to help eyes stay fresh and white throughout the day. They provide amazing comfort and can be worn up to 6 continuous days and nights.

With their plasma treated lens surfaces Air Optix Aqua contact lenses resist deposits and a unique moisture agent binds with the lens surface to create a more silky layer. This allows the eyelid to easily glide over the lens. Introduced in 2008, Air Optix Aqua are one of the latest spherical silicone hydrogel lenses available from Alcon Inc.

Features and Benefits of Air Optix Aqua 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.
