Abstract

Patterns of prescribing daily disposable contact lenses in the UK were determined by mining through data gathered from annual contact lens fitting surveys conducted over the past 12 years. Spherical, toric and multifocal design daily disposable lenses represent a substantial proportion of all contact lenses prescribed, reflecting the significant ocular health and lifestyle advantages offered by this lens category.

Citation countsare 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.
