AIR OPTIX® COLORS contact lenses are six times more breathable* than the leading colour contact lenses, for healthy-looking eyes.2

Q: How do I care for my AIR OPTIX® COLORS contact lenses?

Proper contact lens care is important, but not difficult. AIR OPTIX® COLORS contact lenses should be removed and cleaned daily. For best results, we recommend OPTI-FREE® PureMoist® Multi-Purpose Disinfecting Solution to care for your AIR OPTIX® COLORS contact lenses.
