  Purpose

Primary Hypothesis:

After 1-week of wear, etafilcon A will be non-inferior to delefilcon A in terms of ease of lens removal. The non-inferiority odds ratio margin is set assuming a reference rate for the etafilcon A lens and a 10% difference between etafilcon A and delefilcon A.

Secondary Hypotheses:

  1. After 1-week of wear, etafilcon A will be non-inferior to delefilcon A in terms of overall comfort. The non-inferiority odds ratio margin is set assuming a reference rate for the etafilcon A lens and a 10% difference between etafilcon A and delefilcon A.
  2. After 1-week of wear, etafilcon A will be non-inferior to delefilcon A in terms of overall vision. The non-inferiority odds ratio margin is set assuming a reference rate for the etafilcon A lens and a 10% difference between etafilcon A and delefilcon A.
  3. After 1-week of wear, the binocular, Snellen Visual Acuity of etafilcon Awill be non-inferior to delefilcon A in terms of the percentage of eyes with 20/20-2 letter vision or better. The non-inferiority odds ratio margin is set assuming a reference rate for the etafilcon A lens and a 10% difference between etafilcon A and delefilcon A.
  4. After 1-week of wear, the corneal staining with etafilcon A will be non-inferior to delefilcon A based on the presence of corneal staining ( Grade '1' '2' '3' or '4') versus absence of corneal staining (Grade '0') in all five ocular regions. The non-inferiority odds ratio margin is set assuming a reference rate for the etafilcon A lens and a 10% difference between etafilcon A and delefilcon A.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Subject Reported Ease of Removal [ Time Frame: 6-10 Days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Measured on a 5 point-scale of excellence (excellent, very good, good, fair and poor) per a participant using a non-inferiority odds-ratio margin.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Subject Reported Overall Comfort [ Time Frame: 6-10 Days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Measured on a 5 point-scale of excellence (excellent, very good, good, fair and poor) per a participant using a non-inferiority odds-ratio margin.

  • Subject Reported Overall Vision [ Time Frame: 6-10 Days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Measured on a 5 point-scale of excellence (excellent, very good, good, fair and poor) per a participant using a non-inferiority odds-ratio margin.

  • Binocular Snellen Visual Acuity [ Time Frame: 6-10 Days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Snellen visual acuity percentage of eyes with a visual acuity of 20/20-2 or better by eye.

  • Overall corneal staining [ Time Frame: 6-10 Days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Proportion of subjects that have corneal staining on the 0-4 NEI scale measured by eye.

  Eligibility

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 45 Years
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • The subject must be between 18 and 45 years of age (inclusive) with no presbyopic add.
  • The subject must read, understand, and sign the STATEMENT OF INFORMED CONSENT and receive a fully executed copy of the form. This should be recorded on the Case Report Form (CRF).
  • The subject must be willing to wear the study lenses for at least 8 hours per day, 7 days per week.
  • The subject must be a current successful soft contact lens wearer in both eyes
  • The subject must appear able and willing to adhere to the instructions set forth in this clinical protocol.
  • The subject's subjective refraction must result in a vertex corrected spherical contact lens prescription in the range of -1.00D to -6.00D in each eye.
  • The subject's refractive astigmatism must be less than or equal to 0.75D in both eyes.
  • The subject must have best corrected visual acuity of 20/30 (6/9) or better in each eye.
  • The subject must require a visual correction in both eyes (no monofit or monovision allowed).
  • The subject must have normal eyes with no evidence of abnormality or disease. For the purposes of this study a normal eye is defined as one having:

    1. No amblyopia.
    2. No evidence of lid abnormality or infection (including blepharitis/meibomitis).
    3. No conjunctival abnormality or infection.
    4. No clinically significant slit lamp findings (i.e. stromal edema, vascularization, infiltrates or abnormal opacities).
    5. No other active ocular disease.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Any ocular or systemic allergies or diseases that may interfere with contact lens wear.
  • Any systemic disease, autoimmune disease, or use of medication, which may interfere with contact lens wear.
  • Clinically significant (Grade 3 or 4) corneal edema, corneal vascularization, corneal staining, or any other abnormalities of the cornea which would contraindicate contact lens wear.
  • Clinically significant (Grade 3 or 4) tarsal abnormalities or bulbar injection which might interfere with contact lens wear.
  • Any ocular infection.
  • Any corneal distortion resulting from previous hard or rigid gas permeable contact lens wear.
  • Pregnancy or lactation.
  • No extended wear in the last 3 months.
  • Diabetes.
  • Infectious diseases (e.g. hepatitis, tuberculosis) or an immunosuppressive disease (e.g. HIV).
  • Employee or family member of the staff of the investigational site.
