This study examines the development of Lid Wiper Epitheliopathy (LWE) in individuals fit with contact lenses having difference coefficients of friction (CoF)
The primary study objectives are to determine the amount of Lid Wiper Epitheliopathy (LWE) induced in subjects after contact lens fitting that do not have LWE at study enrollment. Subjects in the trial will be fit in 2 contact lenses with different coefficients of friction (CoF). One eye will be fit in a contact lens with a low coefficient of friction (Acuvue Oasys®, Johnson & Johnson Vision, Jacksonville FL) while the contralateral eye will be fit in a contact lens with a high CoF (Air Optix® Night & Day® Aqua, Ft. Worth, TX), as reported in the scientific literature. The eye receiving each lens will be assigned randomly. The presence of LWE will be assessed at 2 different time points, approximately 2 hours after contact lens fitting and approximately after 7 days of contact lens wear.

Failure or imperfection of vision at night or in dim light, with good vision only on bright days. (Dorland, 27th ed)
A species in the family AOTIDAE, inhabiting the forested regions of Central and South America (from Panama to the Amazon). Vocalizations occur primarily at night when they are active, thus they are also known as Northern night monkeys.
