The effect of benoxinate HCl on human conjunctival oxygen uptake

Yap, C. Siong & Efron, Nathan (1984) The effect of benoxinate HCl on human conjunctival oxygen uptake. Australian Journal of Optometry, 67(5), pp. 187-189.


Human in vivo conjunctival oxygen uptake (CJOU) was measured before and after instillation of one drop of 0.4% benoxinate HCl. No statistically significant difference in CJOU was found before and after instillation of this anaesthetic. This finding suggests that it is valid to use 0.4% benoxinate HCl in small doses to increase patient compliance and improve technical accuracy during CJOU measurements.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
