Seven patients were fit with two types of hydrogel lenses. Right eyes were fit with Naturvue lenses and left eyes were fit with Hydrocurve II lenses. Each patient was followed for approximately two months to determine which lens was performing better based on several criteria. At the end of the study it was found that Hydrocurve II performed better for three patients, Naturvue performed better for two, and both lenses performed equally well on the remaining two.
