Brief Summary:
An investigational multi-purpose solution (MPS)was clinically evaluated against Biotrue MPS at specific time points over the course of four days. The study was conducted with PureVision lenses.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Corneal Staining by Wear Time [ Time Frame: 1 hour on Day 1, 2 hours on Day 2, 4 hours on Day 3 and End of Day on Day 4 ]
    All participants were contact lenses wearers and were evaluated with a Corneal Staining at 1 hour, 2 hours, 4 hours and end of day. The corneal staining test is performed using fluorescein drops in the eye and ultraviolet illumination to determine if there has been any damage to the cornea from the use of the lens solutions or from the use of the contact lens.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Subjective Solution Preference [ Time Frame: Day 4 ]
    All subjects were asked which solution they prefer based on comfort level: Biotrue MPS, Investigational MPS, or no difference.

  2. Overall Ocular Comfort [ Time Frame: Day 4 ]
    All subjects were asked to rate their lens comfort at each visit based on an 11 point scale where 0 meant that the lens could not be tolerated and 10 indicated that the lens could not be felt.
