Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Contact Lens-Corrected Distance Monocular Snellen Visual Acuity (VA) (20/30 or Better) [ Time Frame: Up to Month 3 ]
    Visual acuity, as assessed for each eye individually. Participant read a distance Snellen chart while wearing study lenses. The percentage of eyes with VA recorded as 20/30 or better is reported. Both eyes contributed to the percentage.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Subjective Rating of Insertion Comfort [ Time Frame: Up to Month 3 ]
    Insertion comfort (30 seconds to 1 minute), as rated by the participant on a 10-point scale, with 1 being poor and 10 being excellent. The participant rated both eyes together by providing one single rating.

  2. Subjective Rating of End of Day Comfort [ Time Frame: Up to Month 3 ]
    End of day comfort, as rated by the participant on a 10-point scale, with 1 being poor and 10 being excellent. The participant rated both eyes together by providing one single rating.

  3. Subjective Rating of Overall Comfort [ Time Frame: Up to Month 3 ]
    Overall comfort, as rated by the participant on a 10-point scale, with 1 being poor and 10 being excellent. The participant rated both eyes together by providing one single rating.

  4. Subjective Rating of End of Day Dryness [ Time Frame: Up to Month 3 ]
    End of day dryness, as rated by the participant on a 10-point scale, with 1 being dry and 10 being not dry. The participant rated both eyes together by providing one single rating.

  5. Subjective Rating of Overall Vision [ Time Frame: Up to Month 3 ]
    Overall vision, as rated by the participant on a 10-point scale, with 1 being poor and 10 being excellent. The participant rated both eyes together by providing one single rating.

  6. Subjective Rating of Overall Handling [ Time Frame: Up to Month 3 ]
    Overall handling, as rated by the participant on a 10-point scale, with 1 being difficult and 10 being easy. The participant rated both eyes together by providing one single rating.

  7. Lens Centration (Centered, Slight Decentration) [ Time Frame: Up to Month 3 ]
    Lens centration, as assessed by the investigator for each eye individually. Lens centration was graded on a 5-point scale: 0=centered, 1=slight decentration, 2=mild decentration, 3=moderate decentration, 4=severe decentration. The combined percentage of lenses assessed as "centered" or "slight decentration" is reported. Lenses from both eyes contributed to the percentage.

  8. Lens Fit (Optimal, Acceptably Loose, Acceptably Tight) [ Time Frame: Up to Month 3 ]
    Lens fit, as assessed by the investigator for each eye individually. Lens fit was graded on a 5-point scale: 2=unacceptably loose, 1=acceptably loose, 0=optimal, -1=acceptably tight, and -2=unacceptably tight. The combined percentage of lenses assessed as "optimal," "acceptably loose," or "acceptably tight" is reported. Lenses from both eyes contributed to the percentage.

  9. Front Surface Wettability (None, Very Slight) [ Time Frame: Up to Month 3 ]
    Front surface wettability (i.e., assessment of the disruption of the front surface wettability of the contact lens), as assessed by the investigator for each eye individually. Front surface wettability was graded on a 5-point scale: 0=none, 1=very slight, 2=slight, 3=moderate, 4=severe. The combined percentage of lenses assessed as "none" or "very slight" is reported. Lenses from both eyes contributed to the percentage.

  10. Front Surface Deposits (None, Very Slight) [ Time Frame: Up to Month 3 ]
    Front surface deposits on the contact lens, as assessed by the investigator for each eye individually. Front surface deposits were graded on a 5-point scale: 0=none, 1=very slight, 2=slight, 3=moderate, 4=severe. The combined percentage of lenses assessed as "none" or "very slight" is reported. Lenses from both eyes contributed to the percentage.

  11. Back Surface Debris/Deposits (None, Very Slight) [ Time Frame: Up to Month 3 ]
    Back surface debris/deposits on the contact lens, as assessed by the investigator for each eye individually. Back surface debris/deposits were graded on a 5-point scale: 0=none, 1=very slight, 2=slight, 3=moderate, 4=severe. The combined percentage of lenses assessed as "none" or "very slight" is reported. Lenses from both eyes contributed to the percentage.

  • Other protocol-defined inclusion criteria may apply.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Anterior segment infection, inflammation, or abnormality.
  • Any active anterior segment or systemic disease that would contraindicate contact lens wear.
  • Use of systemic medications that would contraindicate lens wear.
  • Any ocular or systemic medical condition that may, in the opinion of the investigator, preclude safe administration of the study lenses or affect the results of this study.
  • History of herpetic keratitis.
  • History of refractive surgery or irregular cornea.
