The effect of hard lens wear on blinking behaviour
The blinking behaviour of 7 subjects was examined under experimentally controlled conditions before and after hard contact lens fitting. Even after comfortable all day wear had been achieved, the mean blink rate increased from 15.5 blinks/min to 23.2 blinks/min. There was a decrease with contact lens wear in the frequency of occurrence of long duration inter-blink periods, but the blinking action remained complete and normal.
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.
