Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Comfort After Insertion [ Time Frame: 3 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Comfort after insertion (30 seconds to 1 minute) as interpreted and reported by the participant on a questionnaire as a single, retrospective evaluation of three months' wear time. Comfort after insertion was measured on a 10-point scale, with 1 being poor and 10 being excellent.

Enrollment: 169

Study Completion Date: November 2009
Primary Completion Date: November 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Lotrafilcon A
Investigational contact lens worn in both eyes for three months
Device: Lotrafilcon A contact lens
Investigational silicone hydrogel, single vision, soft contact lens worn on a daily wear basis, flexible wear basis, or extended wear basis for three months


Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Be able to wear the study lenses in the available powers.
  • Currently wear contact lenses for a minimum of 5 days a week, and at least 8 hours a day.
  • Other protocol-defined inclusion/exclusion criteria may apply.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Eye injury or surgery within twelve weeks of enrollment.
  • Pre-existing ocular irritation that would preclude contact lens fitting.
  • Currently enrolled in an ophthalmic clinical trial.
  • Evidence of systemic or ocular abnormality, infection or disease likely to affect successful wear of contact lenses or use of their accessory solutions.
