Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to demonstrate that the VISCO (Olifilcon A) soft contact lens could be prescribed as a supportive care for myopic persons.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Myopia Device: Biofinity soft contact lens Device: Visco soft contact lens Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
This randomized controlled study will involve at least 50 evaluable subjects divided evenly among 5 study sites in Taiwan. Each study site will enroll 12 subjects at least. The ration of evaluable test subjects to control subjects will be 2 to 1. Subjects who have normal ocular health and conform to a set of standard criteria will wear one of the study lenses on two eyes and follow up for 3 months (90 days). Lenses will be assigned to subject according to a predetermined randomized order. It is necessary to remove contact lenses every day and replace after 30 days. Any unscheduled visit will be allowed when there is a medication necessary. The data for slit lamp findings, symptoms/problems/complaints, keratometry (K) reading, refractive changes (absolute value), visual acuity data, average wear time (AWT), discontinuations, and lens replacement will be collected to claim that the VISCO Soft Contact Lens is as safe and effective as BIOFINITY (comfilcon A) Soft Contact Lens (CooperVision).

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Visual Acuity [ Time Frame: 3 months ]
    Visual acuity correctable to snellen 20/25 or better


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Slit Lamp Findings [ Time Frame: 3 month ]
    Any slit lamp finding > Grade 2; Measured on a scale of 0-4 with 0=no findings and 4=severe findings

  2. Symptoms, Problems and Complaints and Incidence Rate [ Time Frame: 3 month ]
    Subjective Responses to comfort/symptoms/complaints were measured at every visit. 1=Severe Burning to 10=No Burning for each eye

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Subjects have history of allergies that would contraindicate solution use and/or "normal" contact lens wear.
  • Cornea sensitivity low, high myopes, Keratoconus, dry eye with Schirmer Test < 5mm/5min or other physical condition that would contraindicate contact lens wear.
  • Subjects have other active ocular or systemic disease that would contraindicate contact lens wear.
  • Subjects have medications that would contraindicate contact lens wear.
  • Females who are pregnant, breastfeeding, birth control pill taken or who intended to become pregnant over the course of the study.
  • Current drug or alcohol use or dependence that would interfere with adherence to study requirements.
