Tear pH: How predictable?

Hill, Richard M. & Carney, Leo G. (1978) Tear pH: How predictable? Journal of the American Optometric Association, 49(3), pp. 269-270.

Abstract

While the tear pH of a patient is now known to be continually shifting throughout the waking day, such variations were found to be contained within fairly narrow limits (a range here of about 0.6 of a pH unit). Further, sufficient repetition of these shifts occurred over 10 days observed that patterns distinctive of the individual patient often emerged.

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.
