Other hydrophilic lens environments: pH

Carney, Leo G. & Hill, Richard M. (1976) Other hydrophilic lens environments: pH. American Journal of Optometry and Physiological Optics, 53(9 pt1), pp. 456-458.

Abstract

Although hydrophilic contact lenses are specifically designed for compatibility with the eye environment, i.e., the tears, they will, with the exception of continuous wear types, spend a significant fraction of their daily cycle in other solutions. This investigation explores the pH characteristics of certain of those alternative media.

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.
