Frequently Asked Questions

What makes Air Optix so popular?

Air Optix lenses are breathable, high performance lenses made from proprietary silicone hydrogel that ensures complete comfort all day long. The range caters to a wide variety of vision problems, from presbyopia to astigmatism, all the while allowing a higher level of oxygen to pass through to the eyes. There are also lenses that can be worn as continuous wear for up to 30 nights, with breathable lenses that allow for comfort and healthy eyes all month long. The lenses sit comfortably on the eye to avoid irritation and ensure complete comfort for the wearer all day long, whether you choose disposable or monthly reusable lenses. They provide superior comfort and enhance healthier eyes, which is why so many people around the world choose Air Optix as their lens of choice.

Who makes Air Optix contact lenses?

Air Optix contact lenses are made by Alcon, who have been global leaders in eye care for over 75 years. They are one of the largest specialist eye care companies in the world, with businesses in surgical and vision care. Alcon operates around the world, with offices and manufacturing facilities in over 60 countries. Their team has been committed to research and development for many years to create lenses that meet the needs of the patient and are comfortable to wear for longer periods. 

Alcon provides a wide range of products for all types of patients, whether you choose daily disposables, monthly multifocals or colour-enhancing contact lenses. Air Optix have lenses that are suitable for long or short-sightedness, as well as more specific prescriptions such as presbyopia or astigmatism, ocular allergies and dry or sensitive eyes.

Why use Air Optix contact lenses?

Air Optix lenses are renowned for their ability to allow high levels of oxygen to transfer through the lens to the eye, keeping the eyes feeling fresh and comfortable for long periods. Dry eyes are irritating and can cause redness, making your lenses feel uncomfortable on your eyes. Air Optix keeps your eyes healthy and lubricated, preventing dry eyes and irritation. 

This range of lenses is designed to withstand the demands of your busy day by protecting your eyes against the likes of pollution, air conditioning and digital devices. Made from silicone hydrogel, these lenses are highly breathable and are the perfect choice for people working with computers and screens all day long. There are options in the Air Optix range to suit all prescriptions and lifestyle requirements.

How much do Air Optix contact lenses cost?

Prices for Air Optix contact lenses vary depending on the quantity you’re buying, and the type of lenses you choose. Costs for Air Optix lenses tend to range from £14 to £40. Standard contact lenses will be cheaper than specialist prescriptions, such as toric lenses or multifocal lenses, so speak to your optician to determine which type of lens you require for your prescription and lifestyle. The cost of daily disposables can be a little higher than with reusable lenses, but bear in mind that you also don’t have the cost of cleaning or storing a solution to think about which can average out the price. However, if you want to reduce the cost and the waste of your contact lenses, monthly or two weekly reusables are a great choice.

Can I buy Air Optix contact lenses online?

You can buy Air Optix lenses online and the process of doing so is easy. There are many benefits to buying your lenses online, from being able to reorder at the click of a button to skipping standing around in queues at your local opticians to collect your lenses. Ordering online is far quicker and more convenient, and in many cases it can also save you money. We offer a wide range of Air Optix lenses to choose from, so you can find your ideal lenses and have them delivered to your door. 

The ordering process is easy – simply find the lenses that are right for you, enter your prescription and let us know your delivery address, and we’ll do the rest. Your lenses will be delivered quickly to your door, so you can enjoy wearing your lenses as soon as possible.

How do I care for Air Optix contact lenses?

The cleaning process will depend on the type of lenses you choose. Daily disposable lenses can simply be thrown away after each wear and a new pair used when you next want to wear your lenses – they’re a convenient solution that can save you time without compromising on your vision quality. If you choose reusable lenses, you’ll need to clean and store your lenses properly to avoid a build up of bacteria which can cause eye infections. 

With clean and dry hands, use a fresh saline solution to carefully clean the surface of the lens and store it in your lens container, filled with fresh contact lens solution. Storing and reusing your daily disposable lenses can increase the risk of an eye infection, so only wear each pair of lenses once and then dispose of them. Likewise, after each month, replace your monthly lenses with a fresh pair and dispose of the used pair so you can be sure you’re keeping your eyes as healthy as possible.

What alternative brands are there?

If you decide that the Air Optix range isn’t right for you, there are alternatives we have in stock that you can choose instead. 

Proclear contact lenses are designed to provide a high amount of moisture to keep your eyes hydrated all day long, for up to 12 hours a day. They’re ideal for people who suffer with dry eyes and as monthly lenses, they are excellent value for money too. 

Acuvue Oasys lenses are two week disposables that can be worn for 24 hours a day, for up to six nights, so they’re ideal for busier lifestyles. Oasys lenses allow up to three times the amount of oxygen to reach the eyes, and with UV protection, they’re ideal for outdoor lifestyles. 

Biofinity monthly lenses are also a leading brand that are made from a unique form of silicone hydrogel which provides high levels of moistness and breathability for excellent moisture retention for increased comfort.

If you’re unsure if Air Optix is for you, speak to your optician about alternatives that offer similar benefits or get in touch with our team for advice.
