Adding power to Colors

Alcon extends its Air Optix Colors range

Adding power to Colors
Alcon has extended its range of Air Optix Colors contact lenses to include plus power lenses for hyperopes across the full range of nine colours.

The contact lens power range now includes +6.00D to -6.00D, in 0.25D steps and including plano lenses, and -6.50D to -8.00D, in 0.50D steps.

General manager of Alcon UK and Ireland, Shervin Korangy, said: “Consumers are interested in Air Optix Colors contact lenses because of the range of colours available and the comfortable wear they get with this lens.”

He added: “Hyperopes have been vocal about their desire to try the lenses, and having plus powers available is a great way for practitioners to re-engage with their longsighted customers about colour contact lenses.” 

Air Optix Colors is said by Alcon to combine a three-in-one technology for a natural, attractive eye colour, with a unique surface technology for consistent comfort.

The contact lenses are available as a silicone hydrogel, which allows up to six times more oxygen through the contact lens compared to older technology coloured contact lenses. 

Air Optix Colors are recommended for daily wear, with a monthly replacement schedule. The lenses are available with a 8.6mm base curve and a 14.2mm diameter.

Alcon has highlighted that there is no refit required for current Air Optix Aqua contact lens wearers.
