Why Choose Air Optix?

Air Optix brand contacts are unique among silicone hydrogel lenses because of SmartShield® Technology, a patented, ultra-thin surface layer that resists irritating deposits all month long. The protective SmartShield layer also helps keep the lens surface hydrated to ensure a comfortable lens-wearing experience.

Another notable feature of Air Optix contacts is their breathability. Air Optix contacts allow up to five times more oxygen to pass through to the eye than other silicone hydrogel contact lenses on the market. Insufficient oxygen may cause corneal swelling and lead to uncomfortable lens wear. This isn’t a problem with highly breathable Air Optix brand contacts.

Air Optix contacts’ breathability also makes them suitable for both daily and overnight wear. In fact, apart from Air Optix Colors (daily wear only) and Air Optix Night & Day Aqua (FDA-approved for up to 30 nights of continuous wear), all contacts in the Air Optix family are FDA-approved for up to seven days of continuous wear.

Additionally, all Air Optix contacts have a monthly replacement schedule, which many lens wearers find convenient and easy to remember.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are AIR OPTIX brand contact lenses?

The AIR OPTIX contact lens brand is a family of breathable, silicone hydrogel contact lenses from Alcon that provides vision correction for a variety of eye care and lifestyle needs. AIR OPTIX plus HydraGlyde (lotrafilcon B), AIR OPTIX AQUA, AIR OPTIX for Astigmatism and AIR OPTIX AQUA Multifocal contacts are approved for daily wear or extended wear up to 6 nights. AIR OPTIX NIGHT & DAY AQUA contacts are highly breathable* soft lenses and are FDA-approved for daily wear and extended wear up to 30 nights of continuous wear. HydraGlyde (featured in Air Optix plus HydraGlyde) utilizes a patented formulation of wetting agents that keep the surface of the lens hydrated for a relatively long period of time.

How does SmartShield® Technology in AIR OPTIX contacts work?

SmartShield tech is featured in all Air Optix-brand contacts. The feature works by creating an ultra-thin protective layer to help shield your lenses from irritating deposits throughout a month of wear. Not all manufactures of contacts incorporate technology to guard against deposit build-up so this is a differentiator for the brand.

AIR OPTIX plus HydraGlyde, AIR OPTIX AQUA, AIR OPTIX Multifocal, and AIR OPTIX for Astigmatism contact lenses are all FDA-approved for both daily wear and extended wear for a period of up to 6 nights. Meanwhile, AIR OPTIX NIGHT & DAY AQUA contact lenses are FDA-approved for continuous wear of up to 30 nights. In all cases, guidance from your ECP should 1st be sought as every situation is unique.

Can you shower with Air Optix contacts?
No. You should never shower while wearing your Air Optix contacts. Please remove your lenses before showering, bathing, or swimming to avoid exposing them to water. Water contains microbes and contaminants that can pose a risk to eye health.

Air Optix Contact Lens Reviews

Rating: 9.4/10 - 3208 reviews
I like the price of the contacts and in the 4 plus years that i have ordered from lens.com i always get a rebate incentive. so bonus.

Air Optix Aqua

Monthly Disposable

The Hydraglyde contacts are for my husband. He said they feel good and are comfortable. I asked if they were different from the Air Optic and he said there was not much difference that he could tell yet. No complaints thus far. He's been wearing them about a week.

Air Optix Night & Day Aqua

Monthly Disposable

This was my first order from Lens.com. I was really happy with the rebate offer plus the speedy service. I’m sure I’ll be using them again.

Air Optix Aqua Multifocal

Bifocal Lenses

This is a repeat order for me. The lenses are comfortable, correct my vision just fine, and are easy to keep clean. I'm aware not everyone has the same vision issues, but for me the lenses correct near and middle vision. Even close up works quite well if the light is good, though I use cheap magnifying glasses from Dollar Tree often for computer...

Air Optix Colors

Color Disposable

Air Optix is one of the most comfortable lenses I have worn in the past three decades of wearing contact lenses. Furthermore, the colors are vibrant and realistic.

Air Optix plus HydraGlyde

Monthly Disposable

Every once in a while they get foggy and sometimes get eye boogers.
Great contacts!
I'm very happy with the lenses. By far the best ones i had so far. First order i made didn't arrive after more than 2 months. After contacting CS they reshipped the order with tracking this time at no additional charge on my behalf. Very much appreciated and great customer service for sure! Would definitely order again in the future.
