Alcon AIR OPTIX plus HydraGlyde Launch

Are you a contact lens user? I am but I don't wear my contact lenses daily because my eyes are rather sensitive and dry. If I wear my contact lenses daily, it wouldn't last me the entire month. Usually by the 3rd week, I would have dispose them.

Now, it's a different story. Alcon has just unveiled the all new AIR OPTIX plus HydraGlyde earlier this month that is designed to reduce blurry vision throughout the entire month of wear.

The AIR OPTIX plus HydraGlyde merges 2 proprietary technologies - SmartShield Technology and HydraGlyde® Moisture Matrix. With these 2 technologies, wearers no longer need to settle for cloudy vision or dryness mid-way through the month. Why did I say so and what's so great about the innovation?

Over time, protein and oil deposits build-up on monthly contact lenses, making them dry and blurry to wear. Add on residue from cosmetic products like mascara, eye liner, eye makeup remover; this can further compromise clarity of vision and make the lenses uncomfortable. This is where SmartShield Technology comes into the picture as it creates an ultra-thin protective layer on the lens' outer surface that shields the wearer from these annoying deposits giving you a clear vision. 7 out of 10 contact lens wearers in Malaysia agreed that AIR OPTIX plus HydraGlyde was comfortable throughout the entire month of wear.

Understanding that Malaysians usually wear their contact lens for long hours that constitute to dry eye and discomfort, the HydraGlyde Moisture Matrix allows users to experience a lasting moisture boost by attracting and retaining moisture on the lens that allows longer-lasting hydration after 16 hours.

Now you don't have to settle for just any contact lens and putting up with the discomfort nearing the end of the lifespan. #NeverSettle for anything less and as an AIR OPTIX user myself, I look forward to testing out the new innovation myself. Yup, I've not tested them out since I had an eye sty (pimple at the eyelid) 2 weeks back and had a minor operation to remove it.

Having clear vision is very important be it literally or life goals. Having clear focus is all we need and with the launch of the all-new AIR OPTIX plus HydraGlyde, Germaine Yeap has fronted the #NeverSettle campaign. Germaine Yeap is a 32-year old former banker turned Muay Thai fighter and stunt woman. Her #NeverSettle attitude meant that she always had a clear picture of what she wanted to accomplish, big or small, and she persevered to achieve her goals despite setbacks that stood in her way. In the same way, clear vision is absolutely critical for Germaine during her fights. Using AIR OPTIX contact lenses allows Germaine to see clearly and comfortably, without interruption, setting the stage for her to focus on doing what she does best.


The new lenses are available across Malaysia in boxes containing 3 lenses, with a recommended selling price of RM86.90 per box (including GST).
