Centre of gravity of rigid lenses: Some design considerations

Carney, Leo G. & Hill, Richard M. (1987) Centre of gravity of rigid lenses: Some design considerations. International Contact Lens Clinic, 14(11), pp. 431-436.

Abstract

Rigid lens centration and stability are the net result of numerous forces acting on the lens. One of these forces is gravity. The way in which gravitational effects can alter with various lens parameter changes is illustrated using typical lens designs. The relative efficiencies of various lens design alterations in manipulating these effects are also described.

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.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
