- Are Air Optix Night and Day the best contacts for red eyes?
Air Optix Night & Day lenses offer a very high rate of oxygen transmission to the eye and cornea. Because of this, these lenses are approved for extended-wear use by the FDA. This quality of the lens also makes it an ideal lens for patients with persistent red, itchy, or dry eyes. With the comfort that Air Optix Night & Day provides, your eyes will feel less irritated that they would with a standard contact lens. By allowing more oxygen to pass through it than a standard lens does, Air Optix Night & Day can help promote healthier eyes, which in turn should help reduce redness or discomfort.
- What is the difference between Air Optix Aqua and Air Optix Night and Day?
Air Optix Night & Day lenses are FDA approved to be worn for up to 30 consecutive nights. Air Optix Aqua lenses can be worn for up to 6 continuous nights. While both lenses are monthly disposables, the Air Optix Aqua require that every 7th day, the lenses be taken out to give your eyes a break. Air Optix Night & Day has a higher oxygen-transmission rate, and as such can be worn overnight for longer periods of time.
