Every contact lens solution has a different composition that can affect your lens-wearing experience. Solutions vary on the level of cleaning, disinfecting, comfort, and moisture they can provide. That’s why it’s important to find the lens solution that works best for you. Ask your eye doctor if you have any questions.
Saline solution and rewetting drops are not designed to disinfect and recondition
your lenses and should never take the place of your multi-purpose disinfecting solution. For your contact lens care needs, consider OPTI-FREE® PureMoist® Contact Lens Solution, a multi-purpose disinfecting solution, which cleans, disinfects, and stores lenses safely and effectively.
If your eyes experience minor irritation, discomfort, or blurring while wearing your contact lenses, to lubricate and moisten your lenses, consider OPTI-FREE® PureMoist® Rewetting Drops for a burst of soothing freshness.
By choosing the right solution, practicing proper hygiene, and following
the correct steps to clean and store
your lenses, you can help keep your contacts moist and comfortable all day long.

Important information for AIR OPTIX® NIGHT & DAY® AQUA (lotrafilcon A) contact lenses:
Indicated for vision correction for daily wear (worn only while awake) or extended wear (worn while awake and asleep) for up to 30 nights.
A corneal ulcer may develop rapidly and cause eye pain, redness or blurry vision as it progresses. If left untreated, a scar, and in rare cases loss of vision, may result. The risk of serious problems is greater for extended wear vs daily wear and smoking increases this risk. A one-year post-market study found 0.18% (18 out of 10,000) of wearers developed a severe corneal infection, with 0.04% (4 out of 10,000) of wearers experiencing a permanent reduction in vision by two or more rows of letters on an eye chart.
Not everyone can wear for 30 nights. Approximately 80% of wearers can wear the lenses for extended wear. About two-thirds of wearers achieve the full 30 nights continuous wear.
In clinical trials, approximately 3%-5% of wearers experience at least one episode of infiltrative keratitis, a localized inflammation of the cornea which may be accompanied by mild to severe pain and may require the use of antibiotic eye drops for up to one week. Other less serious side effects were conjunctivitis, lid irritation or lens discomfort including dryness, mild burning or stinging.
Contact lenses should not be worn if you have: eye infection or inflammation (redness and/or swelling); eye disease, injury or dryness that interferes with contact lens wear; systemic disease that may be affected by or impact lens wear; certain allergic conditions or using certain medications (ex. some eye medications).
Lenses should be replaced every month. If removed before then, lenses should be cleaned and disinfected before wearing again. Always follow the eye care professional’s recommended lens wear, care, and replacement schedule. If you have questions, ask your eye care professional or contact us at (800) 875-3001 or go to airoptix.com.
