Important information for AIR OPTIX® plus HydraGlyde (lotrafilcon B) contact lenses: For daily wear or extended wear up to 6 nights for near/farsightedness. Risk of serious eye problems (i.e., corneal ulcer) is greater for extended wear. In rare cases, loss of vision may result. Side effects like discomfort, mild burning, or stinging may occur.
