Intervention/exposure
Study type
Interventional
Description of intervention(s) / exposure
The order of assignment to the test and control eye drops will be randomized, with a one week washout in between each study arm.
Arm 1: Systane Complete (HP-Guar and mineral oil) lubricant eye drop (test #1) - one drop (approx 40uL) will be instilled once only into the mini-scleral contact lens prior to lens insertion
Arm 2: Systane Hydration (HP Guar and sodium hyaluronate acid) lubricant eye drop (test #2) - one drop (approx 40uL) will be instilled once only into the mini-scleral contact lens prior to lens insertion
Arm 3: Unit dose saline (control) - approx 100uL will be instilled once only to fill the mini-scleral contact lens prior to lens insertion
All of the study eye drops will be administered in-office by the unmasked study investigator.

Outcomes
Primary outcome [1] 319065 0
Subjective comfort ratings will be collected using 0 to 100 visual analogue scales. The questionnaires will be administered on paper forms at the 1 hour and 6 hour post-lens insertion visits, and will be collected via text or online survey at 2 hours and 4 hours post-lens insertion.
Timepoint [1] 319065 0
Assessments will be conducted at 1 hour, 2 hours, 4 hours and 6 hours post-lens insertion. The primary timepoint is unknown and subject to investigation. However, appropriate statistical adjustments will be applied during the analysis to account for multiple comparisons.
Secondary outcome [1] 366899 0
Subjective vision ratings will be collected using 0 to 100 visual analogue scales. The questionnaires will be administered on paper forms at the 1 hour and 6 hour post-lens insertion visits, and will be collected via text or online survey at 2 hours and 4 hours post-lens insertion.
Timepoint [1] 366899 0
Assessments will be conducted at 1 hour, 2 hours, 4 hours and 6 hours post-lens insertion.
Secondary outcome [2] 367260 0
Subjective satisfaction ratings will be collected using 0 to 100 visual analogue scales. The questionnaires will be administered on paper forms at the 1 hour and 6 hour post-lens insertion visits, and will be collected via text or online survey at 2 hours and 4 hours post-lens insertion.
Timepoint [2] 367260 0
Assessments will be conducted at 1 hour, 2 hours, 4 hours and 6 hours post-lens insertion.

Summary
Brief summary
The purpose of this study is to compare subjective comfort, vision and satisfaction ratings, after insertion of mini-scleral (small diameter rigid gas permeable) contact lenses, when a drop of either ocular (eye) lubricant (i) Systane Complete containing HP-Guar and mineral oil (test eye drop #1) or (ii) Systane Hydration containing HP-Guar and sodium hyaluronate (test eye drop #2) is instilled prior to filling with unpreserved saline before inserting the lenses on eye, compared to filling with unpreserved saline alone (control eye drop), up to 6 hours after lens insertion. The hypothesis is that subjective ratings will be superior at any timepoint (2, 4 or 6 hours) post-lens insertion, when a drop of Systane Complete (test eye drop #1) and/or Systane Hydration (test eye drop #2) is instilled in mini-scleral contact lenses prior to filling with unpreserved saline, compared to filling with unpreserved saline (control) alone.
