Variations in blinking bahaviour during soft lens wear
The change in blinking behaviour following the fitting of soft contact lenses was monitored in seven subjects. The mean blink rate increased from 12.1 blinks/minute to 20.3 despite all subjects achieving comfortable all day wear. there was no evidence of a consistant change in the completeness of the blinking action, only in the rate. Although there are reports to the contrary, we have found that wearing soft contact lenses has a similar effect on the blinking behaviour to that efect resulting from the wearing of hard contact lenses.
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.
