Transcript: Hi this is Alex from My Vision Box and I want to welcome you to our weekly educational video. I hope you enjoy it.
Today we are going to be reviewing the Air Optix Color contact lenses. These are produced by Ciba Vision which is a subdivision of Alcon.
This is a Monthly contact lens that comes in nine different colors. It's very comfortable and a lot of patients are very happy with this lens. This is the first Color contact lens that I would truly recommend to my patients. As a practicing provider for 10 years, you always want to give your patients the best possible lens. And with these a Silicone Hydrogel material, they offer a lot of Oxygen permeability. So they stay more comfortable longer, maintain the physiology and the health of your eyes for a significantly longer period of time. And overall a lot of patients are happier with these than with the Freshlooks that came before them.
However, if you do wear the Freshlook now, it would be very easy for your doctor to transition you into these. They're a very similar size and shape. You just need to ask your Doctor and say "Hey can I get those new versions of the Color contact lenses?" And they should be able to refit you into these.
These are significantly less expensive than the Freshlooks. They are also good for a Month, so it is a lot easier schedule to keep than the Freshlook, which are good for 2 weeks. So it is something to think about when you are talking to your doctor at your next visit.
They come in nine different colors and a lot of patients are truly excited to have these lenses. I hope you try them and I hope you have a good time wearing them.
Thanks for listening and I hope you enjoyed the video and I'll see you on the next one.
