Clinical Performance of Hydrogel vs. Silicone Hydrogel Contact Lenses

2015-03-03 00:08:22 | BioPortfolio


The aim of this non-dispensing fitting study is to evaluate the subjective comfort, lens handling, lens fitting characteristics and visual acuity of different hydrogel lens designs versus silicone hydrogel lenses


This is a 60-subject, double masked, randomized, contra lateral, non-dispensing fitting trial comparing different lens materials (hydrogel vs silicone hydrogel). It is anticipated that this study will involve 2 visits, for each lens pair, as follows: Visits: V1 (lens dispensing), V2 (1 hour post lens settling). Each subject will be randomized to wear the test and control lenses in a series of three short fitting comparisons.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Excessive axial myopia associated with complications (especially posterior staphyloma and CHOROIDAL NEOVASCULARIZATION) that can lead to BLINDNESS.

Plastic surgery of the SCLERA. This procedure is used frequently to prevent blindness and poor vision in patients, especially children, with MYOPIA.

A type of refractive surgery of the CORNEA to correct MYOPIA and ASTIGMATISM. An EXCIMER LASER is used directly on the surface of the EYE to remove some of the CORNEAL EPITHELIUM thus reshaping the anterior curvature of the cornea.

Detachment of the corpus vitreum (VITREOUS BODY) from its normal attachments, especially the retina, due to shrinkage from degenerative or inflammatory conditions, trauma, myopia, or senility.

A refractive error in which rays of light entering the EYE parallel to the optic axis are brought to a focus in front of the RETINA when accommodation (ACCOMMODATION, OCULAR) is relaxed. This results from an overly curved CORNEA or from the eyeball being too long from front to back. It is also called nearsightedness.
