PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to compare two new silicone hydrogel contact lens (CL) models of lotrafilcon B with HydraGlyde moisture matrix (Air Optix plus HydraGlyde®) and samfilcon A (Bausch and Lomb Ultra®) using the Contact Lens Dry Eye Questionnaire-8 (CLDEQ-8) test. METHODS: This prospective study included 30 patients between the ages of 19 and 35 years. Lotrafilcon B with HydraGlyde moisture matrix (Air Optix plus HydraGlyde®) and samfilcon A (Bausch and Lomb Ultra®) CLs were fitted on the right and the left eye of the patients, respectively. All of the patients have not used any CLs before. After 4 weeks, the CLs were compared by asking the Contact Lens Dry Eye Questionnaire-8 (CLDEQ-8) test. RESULTS: The mean scores of CLDEQ-8, frequency and intense of discomfort, dryness, blurry vision, frequency of needing to blink eye, and removal of the CL were assessed. There was no statistically significant difference between two groups (P > 0.05). CONCLUSION: The main reasons for CL discontinuation are dryness and discomfort. These two new CLs used new advanced technology have a good compliance among the first-time CL users.
