††Based on laboratory testing.
‡Among symptomatic lens wearers, those who at baseline experienced end-of-day discomfort or had to remove their lenses earlier than they wished.
‡‡In separate studies, AIR OPTIXTM AQUA contact lenses were tested with habitual multipurpose solution followed by 30 days of use with either OPTI-FREETM PureMoistTM Multipurpose Disinfecting Solution or AOSEPTTM PLUS with HydraGlydeTM Cleaning & Disinfecting Solution. In both studies, comfortable wear time with habitual multipurpose solution was measured at baseline, and with study solution at Day 30.
