Like Air Optix Aqua, they are featuring the Aqua Moisture System for additional comfort on contact.

Where to buy Air Optix Night & Day Aqua

Option 1 - Buying through your Eye Care Professional

Once it is a go, you can buy or reorder through your eye care practitioner. Don't forget to ask your eye care professional whether Alcon is running a rebate program.
