Demographics of UK contact lens prescribing
Morgan, Philip B. & Efron, Nathan (2008) Demographics of UK contact lens prescribing. Contact Lens and Anterior Eye, 31(1), pp. 50-51.
To assess the demographics of UK contact lens prescribing, data gathered from annual contact lens fitting surveys conducted over the past 12 years were mined for clinically useful information. Significant gender differences in age, lens design, wearing modality and wearing frequency are putatively explained in terms of cosmetic and lifestyle factors.
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.
