  Purpose

The purpose of this study is to more objectively evaluate potential lens-material/care solution bio-incompatibilities. We will do this by measuring corneal staining and the amount of fluorescein dye diffusion into the eye.

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • At least 18 years of age.
  • Best correctable vision to 20/40 in each eye.
  • Possess a functional spectacle prescription to allow adequate vision during the de-adaptation and fluorometry measurement period.
  • No known ocular or systemic allergies, which may interfere with contact lens wear.
  • No known systemic disease, or need for medication that may interfere with contact les wear (i.e. antihistamines, beta-blockers, steroids, ect.).

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Subjects demonstrating any medical condition that may affect the results of this study SHOULD NOT be enrolled. The following are specific conditions that exclude subjects from enrollment in this study.
  • Eye (ocular) or systemic allergies that may interfere with contact lens wear.
  • Clinically significant corneal swelling (greater than 3 or 4 on a 0-4 scale), corneal blood vessel growth (vascularization), corneal staining, bulbar redness, tarsal redness, or any other abnormality of the cornea that may cause unsafe contact lens wear.
  • Are taking part in any other study or have taken part in a study within the last 14 days.
  • Are pregnant, or anticipating to become pregnant during the course of the study.
