Corneal changes from hydrophilic contact lenses

Bailey, Ian L. & Carney, Leo G. (1973) Corneal changes from hydrophilic contact lenses. American Journal of Optometry, 50(4), pp. 299-304.

Abstract

Corneal thickness and corneal curvature were measured before and after the wearing of hydrophilic contact lenses and it was consistently found that the thickness increased while the curvature virtually remained unaltered. On removal of the lenses the cornea returned to its normal thickness within two hours.

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.
