Experimental deformation of the in vivo cornea
Previous investigations of the mechanical properties of the cornea have dealt with post mortem material which has been reported as having a delayed as well as an instantaneous component in its response to deforming forces. In the present investigation the recovery of the human in vivo cornea after deformation was measured by a photokeratoscope method. the delayed component of the recovery was much smaller than expected on the basis of some published results for the post mortem material.
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.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
