‡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.
