In case you haven’t heard, Kathryn and Julia are the latest ambassadors for Alcon’s Air Optix and FreshLook, respectively.
I have been wearing FreshLook contact lenses since college. But I wore them out of necessity–I have myopia or nearsightedness at 4.25 (L) and 4.75 (R) each eye. And when Korean lenses became a fad a couple of years back, I never tried them because I know the dangers of using non-FDA approved lenses on your eyes.
Anyway, since I have already been using FreshLook for years, I was really excited to try Air Optix. I have recently been using my Air Optix in Subtle Green and I’m really loving the comfortable wear.
Air Optix is made up of a proprietary silicone hydrogel material which allows more oxygen to pass through the contact lenses, making it more appropriate for long-hour wear. Both FreshLook and Air Optix are US FDA approved.
Here are the available colors for Air Optix and FreshLook:
AIR OPTIX® COLORS and FreshLook® Color Contact Lenses are designed to enhance dark or light eyes and bring out one’s natural beauty. They are made with a unique, smooth surface and feature a technology that combines 3 colors -in -1 to blend naturally with the color of your eye. With this, I normally gravitate towards green and purple lenses. Now I’m trying Gray as well. 🙂 How about you? Have you previously tried wearing colored lenses? What colors do you enjoy wearing?
