Exciting news! We are so pleased to announce the arrival of brand new Air Optix Color lenses in plus powers, available to order now through ReplaceMyContacts.com. While not an entirely new line to us, what is new is that they’ve extended their offerings in these beautiful lenses. Individuals with hyperopia (a.k.a. farsightedness) can now have the vibrant options available to other lens patients. The new Air Optix Color contact lens line is an innovative step towards functionality and fashion. It’s often hard to create a marriage between those two, (hello, stilettos on a Saturday night…in an ice storm), but with the new Air Optix, you don’t have to compromise either one. Kind of like having your cake and eating it, too. And when we’re talking about our vision, that’s just how we like it.
The Air Optix Color contact lenses have been a hit since first launching, and we couldn’t be more pumped about the expansion of this line. So, what’s exactly new about the Air Optix Colors line? They are now available to include a wider range of patients—anyone who struggles with hyperopia can now order their very own pair thanks to the addition of plus power lenses. The new line extends across all nine color ranges. That’s right, a whopping nine! Green today, blue tomorrow…why not? This breakthrough means you’re no longer stuck with a traditional clear pair—not that there’s anything wrong with those either. We just know how much fun, and how easy, it is to switch up your entire look by popping in a fresh pair of colored contacts. You have the choice between subtle and vibrant colors. Here are the subtle color choices:
- Pure Hazel
Sometimes you want to go big though, right? If we’re speaking your language then check out the vibrant options:
- Brilliant Blue
- Sterling Gray
- Gemstone Green
New, Innovative Formula
So we’ve covered the fashion aspect of these gems, but what about the functionality we talked about earlier? Well, did we mention that these are the first of their kinds to be on the U.S. market? That’s right, this is a ground-breaking announcement in the contact world! The Air Optix Color lenses are a daily wear, monthly replacement lenses made from a silicone hydrogel material. The science behind this material is pretty fantastic. It allows up to six times more oxygen to pass through the content lens to reach your eyes. And trust us, this is very good news. Oxygen and eye health go hand in hand. For starts, it helps keep our eyes moist and hydrated. Secondly, without oxygen, our eyes can begin to suffer some serious side effects. These can include the cornea warping, difficulty with vision, “hazy” vision and scarring—yikes! But let’s not get lost in those scary facts. After all, we’re here to announce the wonderful news of something created to keep that from happening! Ah, breathable contacts, we just love you.
For anyone looking for some cold, hard facts on these new, colorful lenses, check these out:
- Available with an 8.6mm base curve and 14.2 mm diameter
- Lens power range from +6.00D to -6.00D and +6.00D to -6.00D
Even if you love color contacts but don’t actually need any vision correction (lucky you!), then Air Optix Colors is a great choice for you. With a medical prescription from a physician, you can have what the industry calls a “plano” version, which doesn’t include any correction, but let’s you enjoy a high-quality, trusted color contact safe for your oh-so-precious eyes.
