The contact lens environment: Tear proteins in perspective

Carney, Leo G. & Hill, Richard M. (1985) The contact lens environment: Tear proteins in perspective. Journal of the American Optometric Association, 56(3), pp. 202-204.


Tear protein deposition on contact lenses can lead to interruption or even cessation of lens wear. Yet, there are positive roles that tear proteins play in the maintenance of ocular integrity, with and without contact lenses present. One of these roles, that of tear buffering, is explored here.

Citation counts are 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.
