Air Optix Night & Day Aqua is designed to be worn continuously for up to 30 nights and days.
Air Optix Night & Day Aqua is made from a breakthrough material, Lotrafilcon A, which makes sleeping in lenses much safer again. The special ingredient which makes the lens so permeable is siloxane, not water, and this allows up to 6 times more oxygen to the cornea than standard soft lenses, making it a healthier option compared to lenses that let less oxygen through to your eye. The patented lens material helps to maintain moisture by minimising the rate of lens dehydration, creating an all day comfortable lens. In addition, an ultra smooth surface has been specifically designed to resist deposits so that your lenses stay clean and comfortable day after day.
A light blue handling tint and inversion indicator has been included to help with handling and insertion.
It is advisable to check with your eye care professional as to suitability before wearing overnight contact lenses.
I have been using the night and day aqua for well over a decade now - so long I can't remember how long I've used them, and it has genuinely been like having normal vision, without the surgery.
I think because of the fact that they're designed to be breathable, that the manufacturer has made the lenses are actually softer and more comfortable than other types of contact lenses, certainly compared to back when I was using a more traditional lens, which had to be taken out each evening and replaced in the morning.
You can wear these for up to a month without having to take them in or out, although when my optician originally prescribed them to me, I was recommended to take them out for a day each week to prevent dryness and potential irritation. I didn't experience any dryness or irritation at all, in fact they were far better than the previous type of lenses I had used.
I have worn these on planes, taken them on free dives and scuba dives, taken them mountain biking, and they have been fine (I got one knocked out when kickboxing once, but that's hardly the fault of the lens). It has been like having a normal pair of 20/20 eyes.
Just to be able to put the lens in once a month and forget about having to change/ clean etc is amazing.
I use this with eye drops to keep eyes fresh and occasionally pour some saline in the eyes with lenses in there.
Waking up being able to see clearly is fantastic for my lifestyle
These lenses are awful. I used to have Purevision. Optician change to these and I didn't like them so changed back to Purevision. Now you no longer have purevision I am back to these.
They tear easily. They dont give clear vision. More than twice the price of Purevision. I am going to try and get Purevision elsewhere as these are no good.
I had to give one star but would have given no star if this was an option.
I have been wearing contacts for a few years & when I heard that there was going to be a lense that lasted for a month, I was delighted. Although they were pricey, I thought that the money would be well spent. How wrong was I? They were terrible. They dry your eyes and I had to remove them at night before bed because if I didn`t, come the morning, my eyes were so dry & sore. That was my primary reason for buying them, for the convenience. If they were not removed at night, my eye lids were practically glued together in the morning. I have reverted back to my original daily disposable lenses. They are far superior. I will not be purchasing again.
Editors Comment: Unfortunately extended wear lenses do not suit everyone. We recommend a fitting and an assessment by an eye care professional to check out suitability.
I don't usually write things in review and this is not a review, why do people do it, if your not satisfied, write to the company and tell them, if you bought a new version of your car and didn't like it then you would go to the showroom and complain, same applies here go to the company, as the meerkat says,SIMPLES,
I don't know guys what are you talking about, maybe because i never had a chance to wear the "old ones", but I used to wear ACUVUE Oasys with hydraclear, and it's like day and night for me. I have experience of wearing lenses for 20 years now and I often had problems with my eyes getting red and irritated, but these particular lenses AirOptix Night&Day changed my life practically. For the last six months wearing them, i haven't had a single problem, no more red eyes and no more dryness in my eyes. I just love them
The old night and day lenses were by far the most comfortable and easy to wear lenses. Unfortunately this product has now been changed and these are the worst lenses ever! I have been wearing contact lenses for 25 years and these are the only lenses I have ever had a problem with.
I've been wearing these contact lenses for years now and have never experienced anything but perfectly comfortable lenses. To me, they are the same as before the name change. I can often wear them for well over 30 days without noticing... naughty.
I used the old Night & Day lenses for many years and they are obviously a better lens. Since using these lenses they are often very blurry, and uncomfortable after only 1-2 weeks, forcing me to change to a new pair. Sometimes I clean the lenses every other day, but they remain uncomfortable and soon become blurred again. Often wake up like a pirate with one eye stuck together at the eyelids.
Unfortunately there are limited alternatives available here, so go elsewhere for a different/better lens if you can.
I got these lenses as a replacement for my usual brand Biofinity which were out of stock. They were awful, I wouldn`t recommend wearing them overnight as they are uncomfortable during the day and you end up with blurry eyes. I got very sore eyes twice and ended up wearing my glasses instead. Have ordered my usual half the price of these but 50 times better! Stay well clear.
I have been introduced to these by my mother, who has been wearing this type of contact for years.
i was thinking to get laser treatment because i really didn`t enjoy putting the lenses in every morning i would normally use dailies, however i was a little sceptical about them, as a few times i fell a sleep in the dailies where horrible and the glued my eyes shut when i woke up and also at night they would get really dry and leap from my eye balls!
I have to admit i have worn them past the 30 days in which i would imagine most people do, and it feels like im not wearing anything. A fantastic product and I shall not be getting laser now, as now i feel as though i don`t need to go through that when i can just get on with NIGHT AND DAYS.
I was apprehensive when I saw the previous reviews for these lenses. I`d been using AirOptix Night and Day for years and was disappointed to find that they`d been discontinued. I decided to give these lenses a try, as basically had no other choice. Although they are supposed to be for 24h wear, I always take mine out at night, just like I did with the old AirOptix Night and Day. I can`t tell the difference at all! They are just as good as the old brand, so have no complaints whatsoever. I think if you wear them just during the day, like I do you`ll find they perform as well as the old lenses. No problems at all!
There are some very negative reviews on here, obviously they are justified based on the reviewers` experience, but for me these are the perfect lenses. They`ve stood up to a 19 hour day including 2 flights and the London Underground with no discomfort, and then 5 days in Moscow using the Metro heavily, plus 4 flights, without so much as wetting them. Ultimate continuous wear lens as far as I`m concerned. My lens trial started off with SiH48, which were almost unbearable after 12 hours, worse than my previous dailies! These kill them. No questions.
I purchased these contacts about a week ago and put them in almost straight away. The first one went in with no problems, very comfortable. The next one felt a little uncomfortable and I took it out, wet it with a little solution and placed it back in. Ever since then, they have been fantastic and trouble free so far. I am extremely pleased at how comfortable they are. I would certainly recommend that you give them a try.
