Oxygen levels beneath the closed eyelid
The level of oxygen at the anterior corneal surface beneath the closed eyelid is shown to be equivalent to an atmosphere of 7.7% oxygen. This finding is in good agreement with assumptions which have been based on the oxygen level at the palpebral conjunctiva. However, in some instances a significant amount of oxygen is derived not only from the palpebral conjunctiva but also from the atmosphere as a result of an imperfect palpebral aperture seal.
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.
