Today, Alcon, the global leader in eye care, launched AIR OPTIX® plus HydraGlyde® for Astigmatism contact lenses in the United States as part of its dedication to meet the needs of 1-in-3 Americans with astigmatism. The newest addition to Alcon’s robust contact lens portfolio offers a unique combination of technologies that support long-lasting lens surface moisture and outstanding comfort to provide astigmatic patients a consistently stable lens-wearing experience.
“Alcon is pleased to offer AIR OPTIX® plus HydraGlyde® for Astigmatism contact lenses as a part of our commitment to arm doctors with reliable vision correction solutions that help their patients see brilliantly,” said Sean Clark, General Manager, Alcon US Vision Care. “We see the need for a monthly toric contact lens that performs as well on the last day of wear as the first, and we are dedicated to providing options whether a patient is new to our lenses or interested in upgrading from one of Alcon’s existing astigmatism products.”
The addition of this unique lens to the #1 prescribed monthly contact lens brand family allows doctors to provide their astigmatic patients outstanding comfort from day 1 to day 303. The advanced lens design provides excellent deposit protection and long-lasting lens surface moisture, giving patients stable vision in just 30 seconds of wear and maintaining crisp, clear vision with every blink.
