†Based on clinical studies with AIR OPTIX® AQUA contact lenses.
Toric contact lenses are designed to correct astigmatism, so they are a little more complex requiring two prescription, one to correct your power and the other to correct the shape of the eye.
In non-astigmatic eyes, the corneas will be both smooth and spherical, thus allowing light to enter the eyes evenly. Astigmatic eyes, however, often have unevenly shaped corneas that warp how light penetrates the retina. It is commonly referred to as a 'football' shaped eye - however, it is very subtle, you cannot see it by looking at your eye!

HydraGlyde® Moisture Matrix is Alcons proprietary moisture technology designed for moisturizing soft contacts, and specially designed for silicone hydrogel contact lenses.
HydraGlyde is a reconditioning agent that embeds in soft contact lenses helping their surface to keep moist, improving comfort levels and wearing times of the contacts.
