Air Optix for Astigmatism Named for Toric Contact Lens Brand

Quick Take: Because lenses for astigmatism require two prescriptions that must stay in place relative to the eye, stability is key to clear, consistent vision. Some contact lenses for astigmatism rotate, which can cause blurry vision, and the buildup of irritating deposits can make them feel dry and less comfortable over time. Air Optix for Astigmatism contact lenses are different, featuring an ultra-smooth surface technology which creates a protective layer of moisture that resists irritating deposits. The lenses provide consistently comfortable and clear vision without compromise. www.airoptix.com
