Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Hyaluronan Levels [ Time Frame: Overall study visits up to 7 days following lens insertion ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Tear samples collected using a Schirmer tear strip and analyzed for hyaluronan (HA)levels, a lubricant found throughout the body, including tears. Levels will be compared between the lens wearers and non-lens wearers.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Visual Acuity [ Time Frame: Overall study visits for up to 2 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Monocular Snellen Visual Acuity (VA)

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Contact Lens Wear
Senofilcon A Lenses, using Sensitive Eyes Saline Solution and/or Biotrue Multipurpose Solution
Device: Contact Lens Wear
Senofilcon A lenses will be rubbed and rinsed with Bausch + Lomb Sensitive Eyes Saline. The lenses will then be placed into Biotrue multi-purpose solution and soaked for at least 10 hours but no more than 24 hours prior to lens insertion into one eye.
Device: Contact Lens Wear
Senofilcon A lenses will be rubbed and rinsed each side with Bausch + Lomb Sensitive Eyes Saline just prior to lens insertion into fellow eye.
Placebo Comparator: Non-Contact Lens Wear Other: Non-Contact Lens Wear
No intervention
