Purpose: To evaluate the performance of two experimental contact lenses (CL) designed to induce relative peripheral myopic defocus in myopic eyes.; Methods: Ten right eyes of 10 subjects were fitted with three different CL: a soft experimental lens (Exp-SCL), a rigid gas permeable experimental lens (ExpRGP) and a standard RGP lens made of the same material (StdRGP). Central and peripheral refraction was measured using a Grand Seiko open-field autorefractometer across the central 60 degrees of the horizontal visual field. Ocular aberrations were measured with a Hartman-Shack aberrometer, and monocular contrast sensitivity function (CSF) was measured with a VCTS6500 without and with the three contact lenses.; Results: Both experimental lenses were able to increase significantly the relative peripheral myopic defocus up to -0.50 D in the nasal field and -1.00 D in the temporal field (p < 0.05). The ExpRGP induced a significantly higher myopic defocus in the temporal field compared to the ExpSCL. ExpSCL induced significantly lower levels of Spherical-like HOA than ExpRGP for the 5 mm pupil size (p < 0.05). Both experimental lenses kept CSF within normal limits without any statistically significant change from baseline (p > 0.05).; Conclusions: RGP lens design seems to be more effective to induce a significant myopic change in the relative peripheral refractive error. Both lenses preserve a good visual performance. The worsened optical quality observed in ExpRGP was due to an increased coma-like and spherical-like HOA. However, no impact on the visual quality as measured by CSF was observed. (C) 2014 British Contact Lens Association. Published by Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
