Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Overall Vision [ Time Frame: After 1 week of wear ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Overall vision, as interpreted by the subject and reported by the subject on a questionnaire as a single, retrospective evaluation of one week's wear time. Overall vision was measured on a 10-point scale, with 1 being poor and 10 being excellent.
