Near Vision Difficulties With Flexible Contact Lens Wear

Carney, Leo G. (1978) Near Vision Difficulties With Flexible Contact Lens Wear. Australian Journal of Optometry, 61, pp. 357-360.

Abstract

Near vision problems with flexible contact lens wear are often sited as a cause for patient failure. This near vision blur is shown to be primarily caused by distortion of the anterior contact lens surface during near fixation. Contact lens surface changes due to an increased inter-blink period during near vision may contribute to the near difficulty.

Impact and interest:

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.
