Analyzing contact lens induced changes of the corneal curvature

Bailey, Ian L. & Carney, Leo G. (1970) Analyzing contact lens induced changes of the corneal curvature. American Journal of Optometry and Archives of American Academy of Optometry, 47(10), pp. 761-768.



Contact lens wear generally induces changes of corneal curvature as measured with the keratometer. Previous studies have considered only one dimension of the curvature change or the fir of the lens. This paper introduces a graphical system in which a co-ordinate system is used to express two dimensions of the lens to cornea fitting relationship. A vector from the initial mode of fit point gives a two dimensional expression of curvature change. There are suggestions on statistical analyses of data plotted on this graphical system.

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.
