Tear pH and the hard (PMMA) contact lens patient
Of the many properties of the eye lens environment perhaps none has remained more controversial in clinical interpretation than tear pH.This may be in part, because so little is known about it. For example, how stable is a patients tear pH throughout the day normally (i.e.pre-fitted)? How does the introduction of a hard contact lens affect this property of the tears, and is tear pH an effective predictor of a patient's adaptability to such lenses. Finally how realistic a concept is the matching of a solution pH to a patient's tears? These are some of the questions explored in this developing study of tear ph and the hard (PMMA) contact lens patient.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and 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.
