Note: Air Optic for Astigmatism has been discontinued by Alcon as of Feb 2019. We hold some stock of this lens and if your powers show in the drop down list, then it is available to order.
The direct replacement is Air Optix for Astigmatism with Hydraglyde
Air Optix for Astigmatism combines a new level of comfort with enhanced Oxygen transmissibility which provides superior all day wearability in a lens that is healthy for your eyes.
Advanced lens optics results in a thin contact lens edge at the points where you need this moist, where the lens interacts with your lids, which results in excellent comfort.
Lenses for astigmatism are noted for their inconsistent vision, especially after blinking, while the lens reorientates on your eyes. To overcome this - Air Optix for Astigmatism has a wide optic zone built into the lens so that you can see clearly, even after blinking.
Each box Contains 3, monthly disposable, soft contact lenses with a light blue handling tint in a buffered saline solution.
These lenses are great!
Before I had lenses that always moved slightly on the eyes, but that`s not the case with toric lenses from Air Optix.
They appear a bit thicker than other lenses but are quite comfortable to wear. Will buy them again.
These lenses are really comfortable to wear - usually i forget I`m wearing them.
The lens is weighted so when you put it on the tip of your finger, you need to be careful as the lens can roll off your finger. Don`t stand next to a sink as it could fall in. After a few days it becomes as easy as inserting normal lenses.
My Left eye is SP -0.50 cyl -1.25 axis 180 Right eye SP -1.00 cyl -0.75 axis 180. My vision is excellent and I can see the text on the monitor clearly.
I would recommend Air Optix and Air Optix Astigmatism to anyone. I have worn both.
