Viability of disposable soft contact lenses for the monovision correction of presbyopia
Every presbyopic patient (n = 257) attending for routine examination at a suburban optometric practice was offered the opportunity to wear disposable contact lenses in the form of monovision correction. Sixty subjects entered the 3-month study. Only 5% of the total number of presbyopes who attended initially, were prepared to continue as fee-paying contact lens wearers. As has been found in other studies, monovision correction itself did not cause any significant visual problems (90% acceptance). It is concluded that disposable soft lenses for monovision correction of presbyopia is a viable economical alternative for a small number of selected patients.
Impact and interest:
Citation countsare sourced monthly fromand 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 theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
