Different Between Air Optix Aqua and Air Optix Plus Hydraglyde?

Difference Between Air Optix Aqua Vs Air Optix Plus HydraGlyde

There's nothing worse than when one of your favorite products gets discontinued. It's even more frustrating when that product is your favorite contact lens brand. Unfortunately, this happens somewhat frequently, so it's important to plan ahead so you aren't caught without more contact lenses.

Recently, Alcon announced that they will discontinue their popular Air Optix Aqua family of contact lenses on September 29th, 2021. Below, we'll explain more about why this lens is being discontinued, and some alternatives you have.

What is the difference between Air Optix Aqua and Air Optix Plus HydraGlyde?

Alcon , the manufacturer of Air Optix , Have introduced new technology . While the lens material and designs are identical, Air Optix plus Hydraglyde covers a wider sphere power range and features two technologies: SmartShield (which is also available in the Air Optix Aqua) and HydraGlyde. These technologies are promising longer lasting hydration and improved deposit resistance. The daily cost price range is similar for both lenses so it might be worth trying the upgraded version .

Sumarry : Aqua & Plus Hydraglyde 

  •  Same size , diameter ,base curve all same
  • Same material 
  • Aqua ( Only smartshield & TriComfort™ Technology High wettability through low contact angle. Permanent plasma treatment for a smooth surface.
  • Hydraglyde ( Smartshield and Hydraglyde )
  • Power range Aqua and Hydraglyde : Pluse Hydraglydes more range Power 
  • HydraGlyde Contact Lens Options   Air Optix HydraGlyde Comparison



Do I need a new prescription to get Air Optix Plus HydraGlyde?

According to Dr. Jennifer Lyerly in the journal Optometric Management, you can use your old Air Optix Aqua prescription to purchase the new Air Optix Plus Hydraglyde. This is because these two brands of contact lenses are the same material and same size. The only difference is the new wetting agent (called HydraGlyde).

If you currently wear Air Optix Aqua for Astigmatism, or Air Optix Aqua Multifocal, don't worry! There is a HydraGlyde version of your contacts too.


all Order and lenses that Global 31 market sell , send  by Alcon , so some lenses follow power and stock avaiable , mostly will send  Hydraglyde , but sometime stock also mix with Aqua stock, with expired date up to date
