Experimental: Contact lens wearers
Contact lens wearers experienced three currently available contact lens/contact lens care combinations in randomized order: balafilcon A + Optifree RepleniSH, balafilcon A + ReNu MultiPlus, and balafilcon A + Unisol 4 saline.
Device: Opti-Free RepleniSH
Commercially available contact lens solution used for pre-soaking balafilcon A contact lenses overnight prior to lens insertion.Device: ReNu MultiPlus
Commercially available contact lens solution used for pre-soaking balafilcon A contact lenses overnight prior to lens insertion.
Other Name: RenuDevice: Balafilcon A
Commercially available silicone hydrogel contact lenses removed from blister pack and soaked overnight in Opti-Free Replenish, ReNu MultiPlus, or Unisol 4, then applied to the eye and worn for 2 hours.
Other Name: PureVisionOther: Unisol 4
Commercially available non preserved sterile saline solution used for pre-soaking balafilcon A contact lenses overnight prior to lens insertion.
No Intervention: Non-lens wearers
Non-lens wearers completed one study visit and served as the control group.
