Hydrophilic lens effects on central and peripheral corneal thickness and corneal topography

Carney, Leo G. (1975) Hydrophilic lens effects on central and peripheral corneal thickness and corneal topography. American Journal of Optometry and Physiological Optics, 52(8), pp. 521-523.

Abstract

Hydrophilic lens wearing causes an almost evenly distributed central and peripheral corneal thickness increase which is virtually eliminated when gas of 100% oxygen tension is passed over the anterior corneal surface. There is little corneal topography change associated with this thickness increase

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.
