Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Distance Visual Acuity [ Time Frame: 1 week ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    logarithm of the minimum angle of resolution (logMar) ideal is 0.0 and represents 20/20 Snellen acuity. logMar values > 0.00 indicate vision poorer than the ideal and values <0.00 indicate vision greater than the ideal.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Lens Comfort [ Time Frame: 1 week ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    A weighted combined score calculated from individual comfort-related questions asked on a 1-5 scale: 1=most negative response to 5=most positive was used to derive comfort outcomes. The analysis shows the difference in outcome between the test and control.>0 = comfortable, <0 = uncomfortable

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • They are of legal age (18 years) and capacity to volunteer.
  • They understand their rights as a research subject and are willing to sign a Statement of Informed Consent.
  • They are willing and able to follow the protocol.
  • They would be expected to attain at least 6.9 (20/30) in each eye with the study lenses.
  • They are able to wear contact lenses which have a back vertex power of -1.00 to -6.00DS.
  • They have a maximum of 1.00D of refractive astigmatism (i.e. < 1.00 DC).
  • They have worn soft contact lenses within six months of starting the study.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • They have an ocular disorder which would normally contra-indicate contact lens wear.
  • They have a systemic disorder which would normally contra-indicate contact lens wear.
  • They are using any topical medication such as eye drops or ointment.
  • They are aphakic.
  • They have had corneal refractive surgery.
  • They have any corneal distortion resulting from previous hard or rigid lens wear or has keratoconus.
  • They are pregnant or lactating.
  • They have grade 2 or greater of any of the following ocular surface signs: corneal edema, corneal vascularization, corneal staining, tarsal conjunctival changes or any other abnormality which would normally contraindicate contact lens wear.
  • They have any infectious disease (e.g., hepatitis) or any immunosuppressive disease (e.g., HIV).
  • They have diabetes.
  • They are currently taking part in any other clinical study or research.
