Air Optix for Astigmatism - Parameters and Specs
Introduced in 2007, Alcon Inc. is offering a toric version - a monthly disposable contact lens specifically designed for people with Astigmatism.
With one of the highest oxygen transmissibility parameters of any toric contact lens in the market, these lenses help your eyes stay white and look healthy. In addition a patented surface treatment minimizes deposits to contribute to healthy lens wear.
Astigmatism is the most common vision problem, caused by an irregular shape of the cornea. Astigmatism can usually be corrected with contact lenses, such as Air Optix for Astigmatism (also called Air Optix Toric). They will help take away the blur that is caused by this condition.
