AIR OPTIX(R) AQUA Multifocal contact lenses with Precision Profile Design
Air Optix(R) Aqua Multifocal contact lenses have Precision Profile Design that allows patients to experience clear vision and smooth visual transitions at all distances. This unique Precision Profile Design is composed of three key features:
Adaptive minus power profile-Allows for a smooth progression of power gradients from center-near, to   intermediate and distance-Negative power at the periphery of the optic zone allows you to “push plus” at distance, improving near vision without impairing distance
Bi-aspheric surface- Aspheric front surface design enhances image quality and contrast-Aspheric back surface facilitates centration and fit
Center-near design- Optimizes visual range by working synergistically with the eye's natural function-Near-The pupil constricts when looking at near which aligns with 
the center of the lens to improve near vision
Distance-The pupil dilates when looking at distance which aligns with the periphery of the lens to aid distance vision
Follow the AIR OPTIX® AQUA Multifocal contact lenses Fitting Guidelines to help ensure quick fit success.
