An engineer for a vision care company tests a new cleaning solution for contact lenses. The engineer wants to verify that the new solution cleans lenses as well as the leading brand. The engineer has 14 participants wear contact lenses for a day, and then clean the lenses. Each participant cleans one lens in the new solution and the other lens in the leading brand. The engineer assesses the cleanliness of each lens by measuring the angle of contact for a drop of fluid on the lens. The angle of contact is affected by film or deposits on the lens. To be equivalent, the mean angle for the new solution should be within ±0.5 degrees of the mean angle of the leading brand.
You can use this data to demonstrate Equivalence Test with Paired Data.
|Leading Brand||The angle of contact for a drop of fluid on lenses cleaned with the leading brand solution|
|New||The angle of contact for a drop of fluid on lenses cleaned with the new solution|
