This study was designed to evaluate three hydrophilic contact lens materials for comfort, dryness and overall satisfaction on subjects with and without subjective dry eye. The lenses evaluated were Acuvue, Proclear and SaturEyes. Thirty-seven subjects wore each pair of contact lenses for one week. Lens evaluations were reported via questionnaire. The subjects without dry eye rated all three lenses about the same for comfort, dryness and overall satisfaction. Participants with dry eye symptoms rated the lenses the same for comfort and overall satisfaction but preferred SaturEyes when assessing dryness.
