This means you can enjoy healthy and comfortable eyes for the entire time that you’re wearing them. It’s also helped make this range, including Air Optix Aqua, Air Optix Aqua Night and Day, one of our bestselling brands. There’s even Air Optix for Astigmatism, if you’re looking for toric lenses, and Air Optix Aqua Multifocal for people with presbyopia.

    Air Optix Aqua

    I absolutely love these and have been using these for about 5 years now. They are comfortable, they do not dry out and most importantly they last throughout many hours of work through the day
