PURPOSE To investigate the short-term physiologic response to three soft lens materials with different oxygen permeability characteristics. METHODS Forty-three neophytes were randomly prescribed Acuvue 2, Acuvue Advance (Johnson & Johnson Vision Care), or Focus Night & Day (CIBA Vision) for 4 weeks on a daily-wear basis. A further 19 subjects did not wear lenses (control). Experimental and control subjects were examined 2 and 4 weeks after dispensing. Ocular physiologic response was measured… CONTINUE READING
