Important information for AIR OPTIX® NIGHT &
DAY® AQUA (lotrafilcon A) contact lenses: AIR OPTIX®NIGHT &
DAY®AQUA lenses are indicated for vision correction for daily
wear (worn only while awake) or extended wear (worn while awake and
asleep) for up to 30 nights. Relevant Warnings: A corneal ulcer may
develop rapidly and cause eye pain, redness or blurry vision as it
progresses. If left untreated, a scar, and in rare cases loss of
vision, may result. The risk of serious problems is greater for
extended wear vs. daily wear and smoking increases this risk. A
one-year post-market study found 0.18% (18 out of 10,000) of wearers
developed a severe corneal infection, with 0.04% (4 out of 10,000)
of wearers experiencing a permanent reduction in vision by two or
more rows of letters on an eye chart. Relevant Precautions: Not
everyone can wear for 30 nights. Approximately 80% of wearers can
wear the lenses for extended wear. About two-thirds of wearers
achieve the full 30 nights continuous wear. Side Effects: In
clinical trials, approximately 3-5% of wearers experience at least
one episode of infiltrative keratitis, a localized inflammation of
the cornea which may be accompanied by mild to severe pain and may
require the use of antibiotic eye drops for up to one week. Other
less serious side effects were conjunctivitis, lid irritation or
lens discomfort including dryness, mild burning or stinging.
Contraindications: Contact lenses should not be worn if you have:
eye infection or inflammation (redness and/or swelling); eye
disease, injury or dryness that interferes with contact lens wear;
systemic disease that may be affected by or impact lens wear;
certain allergic conditions or using certain medications (ex. some
eye medications). Additional Information: Lenses should be replaced
every month. If removed before then, lenses should be cleaned and
disinfected before wearing again. Always follow the eye care
professional™s recommended lens wear, care and replacement
schedule. If you have questions, ask your eye care professional or
