Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Visual Acuity [ Time Frame: Dispensing & 1-week follow up ]
    Distance high contrast logMAR lens visual acuity (VA) between the Air Optix Aqua lens and the Test Lens at Dispensing and at 1-Week Follow-up.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Slit Lamp Findings [ Time Frame: 1 week ]
    Measured on a scale of 0-4 where 0=none, 1=trace, 2=mild, 3=moderate, and 4=severe for edema, microcysts, corneal staining, limbal injection, bulbar injection, upper lid tarsal conjunctival abnormalities, corneal neovascularization and corneal infiltrates.

  • Comfort [ Time Frame: 1 Weeks ]
    At 1-Week Follow-up, participants rated lens comfort on a scale of 0 to 100, with 100 being the most favorable score.

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   Yes

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Have physiologically normal anterior segments not exhibiting clinically significant biomicroscopy findings.
  • Be adapted wearers of soft contact lenses, wear a lens in each eye, and each lens must be of the same manufacture and brand.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Have worn gas permeable (GP) contact lenses within last 30 days or polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) lenses within last 3 months.
  • Any systemic disease affecting ocular health.
  • Using any systemic or topical medications that will affect ocular physiology or lens performance.
  • An active ocular disease, any corneal infiltrative response or are using any ocular medications.
  • Any "Present" finding during the slit lamp examination that, in the Investigator's judgment, interferes with contact lens wear.
  • Allergic to any component in the study care products.
