Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Subjective Assessment of Comfort and Cleanliness [ Time Frame: 7 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Scale from 0-100 for each eye where 100=most favorable rating and 0=the least favorable rating.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Symptoms and Complaints [ Time Frame: 2 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Scores on a scale from 0 to 100, with 100 being the most favorable. Eyes with multiple unscheduled visits in a visit category were counted once for their lowest score.

  • Graded Slit Lamp Findings > Grade 2 [ Time Frame: 2 week follow-up visit ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Grade none (no findings) - grade 4 (severe findings). Eyes in the Test group were compared with eyes in the Control group. Slit lamp finding greater than Grade 2.
