Clear Air Optix lenses have been a great high oxygen (silicone hydrogel) monthly disposable contact lens and are now available in COLOR!
Air Optix Colors have the same high oxygen permeability, wettability, and comfort as it’s clear counterpart. I used to discourage patients from wearing color lenses or limit their wear time in them, and for the first time, there is a healthier material with frequent replacement color lens option for us to prescribe. Colored lenses are popular because they make a statement about your personality and style. They also add something extra to your Halloween costume!
Air Optix Colors are available in: Pure Hazel, Green, Blue, Gray, Brown, Honey, Gemstone Green, Brilliant Blue, and Sterling Gray
For now, it looks like they are only available for nearsighted prescriptions, with the farsighted parameters likely coming out in 2015.
If you’re interested in being fit with Air Optix color lenses, we would be happy to help you with that at Avenue Eyecare.
