Plain English Summary

Background and study aims
Presbyopia is a condition associated with ageing in which the eye’s ability to focus on near objects gradually becomes more difficult. Multifocal contact lenses can be used to help individuals with presbyopia to see objects both in the distance and up close; however, how well these contact lenses perform depends on the wearer’s prescription, the activities that they are conducting and the lighting conditions. The aim of this study is to measure and compare the visual performance and visual satisfaction achieved with two pairs of multifocal contact lenses which are designed to correct distance, intermediate and near vision.

Who can participate?
Adults who are at least 40 years old and who have healthy eyes other than for needing a near vision correction

What does the study involve?
Participants' eyes will be examined by the investigator and they will be fitted with a pair of the first type of multifocal contact lenses. They will be provided with a supply of these lenses to be worn on a daily disposable basis (wearing one pair each day and discarding it at the end of the day) and asked to return after a period of 7 to 10 days. At this time they will be asked to complete a short questionnaire about the lenses and then the investigator will measure their vision with the lenses. They will be asked to read letters of different sizes on both a computer screen and on smaller electronic tablets under bright, normal and dim lighting conditions. They will then remove the lenses and their eyes will once again be examined by the investigator before they are fitted with a pair of the second type of multifocal lenses. They will be provided with a supply of these lenses to be worn on a daily disposable basis to return after a further period of 7 to 10 days. At this time they will be asked to complete a short questionnaire about the lenses and then the investigator will measure their vision with these lenses. They will then remove the lenses and their eyes will once again be examined by the investigator before they are discharged from the study. All study participants will undergo the same series of vision tests and tasks.

What are the possible benefits and risks of participating?
The possibility exists that participants may not directly benefit from participation in this study. Their participation, however, is contributing scientific research information that may be used in the development of new, perhaps more successful, contact lenses. The examination and assessments of the front part of the eye are at no cost to the participants and can be considered beneficial by documenting their current health status. All contact lenses have the potential of causing serious injury to the eye. Due to the nature and duration of the study, the risks of participating in this study are considered to be similar to those of normal contact lens wear. It is possible that the following problems may occur with the use of contact lenses: eyes stinging, burning, itching (irritation) or other eye pain; comfort is less than when lens was first placed on the eye; feeling that something is in the eye such as a foreign body or scratched area; excessive watering (tearing) of the eye; unusual eye secretions; redness of the eye; reduced sharpness of vision (poor visual acuity); blurred vision, rainbows, or halos around objects; sensitivity to light (photophobia); or dry eyes. If participants experience any of these, they should let the investigator know as soon as possible. In rare instances, corneal ulcers, scarring, the growth of blood vessels into the cornea, temporary or permanent decreased vision, iritis and infections of the eye requiring treatment might occur.

Study hypothesis

This is an initial verification study, therefore there is no formal hypothesis. The intent is to assess if a trend is present, to show that the overall visual satisfaction and the number of lenses used to attain the optimal lens with CVI MF is equivalent to 1DAVM.

Condition

Presbyopia

Intervention

Participants will be wearing two different MF CL (Test - CVI MF, Control - 1DAVM). Their eyes will be examined by the investigator and they will be fitted with a pair of the first type of multifocal contact lenses. They will be provided with a supply of these lenses to be worn on a daily disposable basis (wearing one pair each day and discarding it at the end of the day) and asked to return after a period of 7 to 10 days. At this time they will be asked to complete a short questionnaire about the lenses and then the investigator will measure their vision with the lenses. They will be asked to read letters of different sizes on both a computer screen and on smaller electronic tablets under bright, normal and dim lighting conditions. They will then remove the lenses and their eyes will once again be examined by the investigator before they are fitted with a pair of the second type of multifocal lenses. They will be provided with a supply of these lenses to be worn on a daily disposable basis to return after a further period of 7 to 10 days. At this time they will be asked to complete a short questionnaire about the lenses and then the investigator will measure their vision with these lenses. They will then remove the lenses and their eyes will once again be examined by the investigator before they are discharged from the study. All study participants will undergo the same series of vision tests and tasks.
