Detailed Description:

This study will be divided into two phases, a pre-investigational screening phase and an investigational phase. During the pre-investigational screening phase, all participants will use PureVision contact lenses and ReNu Multiplus multipurpose solution per manufacturers' guidelines for 30 days. Eligible participants will continue into the investigational phase and will be randomly assigned to wear Air Optix Aqua or Oasys lenses with two months randomized crossover of contact lens care (one month each of Opti-Free PureMoist MPDS and Biotrue MPS).
