Effect of aging and the environment on oxygen availability under hydrogel contact lenses

Brennan, Noel A. & Carney, Leo G. (1982) Effect of aging and the environment on oxygen availability under hydrogel contact lenses. American Journal of Optometry and Physiological Optics, 59(12), pp. 1008-1112.



Oxygen availability under hydrogel lenses was followed for 19 subjects over the first 6 months of wear. Each subject was assigned to a specific cleaning group, through which the method and intensity of cleaning was varied. The mean oxygen availability did not change significantly over the first six months of wear, regardless of the cleaning system used. However, the stability of the oxygen supply was dependent on the intensity of the cleaning system.

Search Google Scholar™

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.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
