Response of the Human Cornea to Anoxic Stress

Efron, Nathan & Carney, Leo G. (1982) Response of the Human Cornea to Anoxic Stress. Australian Journal of Optometry, 65(2), pp. 56-57.


The human cornea reaches a maximum state of oxygen demand after five minutes of total anoxia; after longer periods of anoxia this demand is slightly reduced. An average increase in corneal oxygen demand of 2.5 times was observed for periods of anoxia greater then five minutes. These results are in agreement with those from rabbit eye studies.

Search Google Scholar™

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.
