Brief statement of intended use: AIR OPTIX NIGHT & DAY AQUA lenses (lotrafilcon A) are indicated for daily wear or extended wear for up to 30 continuous nights. Warning: The risk of serious ocular complications is greater for extended wear as compared to daily wear of contact lenses and smoking increases the risks. Precautions: Not all patients can achieve the maximum wear time of up to 30 nights of continuous wear. Patients should be monitored closely during the first month of 30-night continuous wear. The maximum suggested wearing time should be determined by the eye care practitioner based upon the patients physiological eye condition because individual responses to contact lenses vary. Side effects: Infiltrative keratitis was reported at a rate of approximately 5% during the one-year US study of 1300 eyes. Other side effects included conjunctivitis, GPC, and lens discomfort, including dryness, mild burning, or stinging. Contraindications: The lens should not be used when an inflammation or infection of the eye is present, or when there is any disease or injury in or around the eye or eyelids. The lenses should not be used by individuals who have medical conditions that might interfere with contact lens wear.
