Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Slit-lamp Findings > Grade 2 [ Time Frame: Over 4 visits for 3 month period ]
    eyes with any slit lamp findings greater than Grade 2 at any visit. Slit lamp findings for each eye will be graded for severity on a scale from 0 (No Finding) to 4 (Severe Finding). Epithelial edema, epithelial microcysts, corneal staining, limbal injection, bulbar injection, superior tarsal conjunctival abnormalities, corneal neovascularization, and corneal infiltrates will be assessed.

  2. Subjective Responses to Comfort Related Symptoms/Complaints [ Time Frame: Over 4 visits for the 3 month period ]
    Subject symptoms/complaints will be assessed on a scale from 0 to 100, with 0 denoting unfavorable symptoms/complaints.

  3. Contact Lens Deposits [ Time Frame: At each visit for 3 months ]
    Lens deposits assessed at each follow-up visit. Degree of deposits assessed as none, light, medium, or heavy.
