Ten Subjects (twenty eyes) were fitted with a pair of CSI-T lenses and a pair of A. 0. Softcon E.W. lenses. One-half of the subjects were initially fit with the Softcon E.W., and after a period of extended wear, each subject was refit with the other lens. When each subject was able to wear both lenses on an extended wear basis, they were asked to choose which lens they preferred, and were then monitored while wearing this lens for five to six months. This paper indicates the selections made and problems encountered among subjects wearing these two extended wear lenses.
