Primary Outcome Measures:
  • End of Day Comfort [ Time Frame: 5 days of wear, lenses replaced daily ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    End of day comfort was interpreted and reported by the participant on a questionnaire as a single, retrospective evaluation of 5 days of wear. End of day comfort was measured on a 10-point scale, with 1 being poor and 10 being excellent.

  • End of Day Dryness [ Time Frame: 5 days of wear, lenses replaced daily ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    End of day dryness was interpreted and reported by the participant on a questionnaire as a single, retrospective evaluation of 5 days of wear. End of day dryness was measured on a 10-point scale, with 1 being very dry and 10 being not dry.

  • Handling at Removal [ Time Frame: 5 days of wear, lenses replaced daily ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Handling at removal was interpreted and reported by the participant on a questionnaire as a single, retrospective evaluation of 5 days of wear. Handling at removal was measured on a 10-point scale, with 1 being poor/difficult and 10 being excellent/easy.

  • Overall Vision [ Time Frame: 5 days of wear, lenses replaced daily ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Overall vision was interpreted and reported by the participant on a questionnaire as a single, retrospective evaluation of 5 days of wear. Overall vision was measured on a 10-point scale, with 1 being poor and 10 being excellent.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Overall Fit [ Time Frame: Day 5, lenses replaced daily ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Overall lens fit was assessed by the investigator at study visit using a biomicroscope, which magnifies the appearance of the contact lens on the participant's eye. Lens fit was assessed by eye and graded on a 5-point scale, with 2=unacceptably loose, 1= acceptably loose, 0=optimal, -1=acceptably tight, and -2=unacceptably tight
