Management of ocular complications of contact lens wear: A systematic approach

Efron, Nathan (1988) Management of ocular complications of contact lens wear: A systematic approach. Journal of The British Contact Lens Association, 11, pp. 32-34.


The general difficulties faced by clinicians in deciding upon an appropriate treatment when confronted with an adverse tissue reaction to contact lens wear are considered. A systematic approach to the problem is discussed – this involves relating the presenting symptoms and signs to the underlying pathology and aetiology. Contact lens induced epithelial staining and stromal vascularization are used as examples. The scientific method can be applied to clinical problem solving by way of retrospective and prospective trails.

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.
