AIR OPTIX® plus HydraGlyde® contact lenses are made with a highly breathable* material that allows nourishing oxygen to flow continuously through the lens for white, healthy-looking eyes8.They are the first and only contact lenses to feature two advanced technologies, SmartShield® Technology and HydraGlyde® Moisture Matrix , to help provide excellent deposit protection3,4, and support long-lasting lens surface moisture1,2,7
SmartShield® Technology delivers an ultra-thin protective layer to help shield your lenses from irritating deposits all month long.3, 4, 9
Exclusive HydraGlyde® Moisture Matrix surrounds the lens surface in lasting moisture to keep lenses continuously hydrated throughout the day.1,2,7∥
HydraGlyde® Moisture Matrix is a proprietary moisture technology designed for moisturizing soft contact lenses, and specially designed for silicone hydrogel lenses. It works to keep the lens surface moist throughout the day.1,7 This same exclusive moisture technology is also featured in Alcon's premium lens care offerings, OPTI-FREE® Puremoist® and CLEAR CARE® Plus with HydraGlyde®, which deliver extra hours of lens-wearing comfort.10-12 AIR OPTIX® plus HydraGlyde® contact lenses are the first and only contact lens to feature this advanced moisture technology.
