Purpose: Two contact lens multi-purpose disninfecting solutions were compared in a patient preference survey.

Methods: The study is randomized, investigator-masked, multi-center, prospective crossover study looking at contact lens solution tolerability and performance. Patients were randomized into two groups. Two groups are tested; Group 1: AMO’s RevitaLens (RVL) then Alcon’s Opti-Free PureMoist (PM); Group 2: Alcon’s Opti-Free PureMoist then AMO’s RevitaLens. Patients used each solution for one to two weeks daily wear. Lenses worn were Biofinity. A patient preference questionnaire was administered at the end of the study.

Results: 28 patients, mean age 35.29, age range: 18 to 61 years old, 10 males: 18 females were seen at three sites. For Q1: Please compare the overall comfort the CL solution provided after 2 weeks of use: RVL was preferred 65.4%, PM 23.1% and equal 11.5%. For Q2: Please compare the ability of the CL solution to effectively provide symptom relief after 2 weeks of use: RVL was preferred 57.7%, PM 26.9% and Equal 15.4%. For Q3: Which CL solution produced less blurring after 2 weeks of use:<br /> RVL preferred 50%, PM 26.9% and Equal 23.1%. For Q4: Which CL solution would you prefer to purchase on your own after 2 weeks of use: RVL was preferred 69.2%, PM 26.9% and Equal 3.8%.

Conclusions: AMO’s RevitaLens was preferred over Alcon’s Opti-Free PureMoist by the majority of patients at the end of the study.
