Air Optix Aqua and the newer Air Optix plus HydraGlyde are high-performance silicone hydrogel contact lenses from Alcon Inc.. Is it worth upgrading to Air Optix plus HydraGlyde? While the lens material and designs are identical, Air Optix plus Hydraglyde covers a wider sphere power range and features two additional technologies: SmartShield and HydraGlyde are promising longer lasting hydration and improved deposit resistance. The daily cost price range is similar for both lenses so it might be worth trying the upgraded version. Check with your eye care practitioner.
