Tear pH: Resistance to change
While considerable study and clinical speculation has been given to tear pH, almost no attention has been paid to the buffering capacity of this fluid. Responses of tears to an alkaline challenge test as a measure of their buffering capacity are described here for a series of patients. The magnitudes of those resulting shifts, and the probable mechanisms influencing them are commented upon.
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.
