Central and peripheral corneal thickness changes during contact lens wear

Carney, Leo G. (1974) Central and peripheral corneal thickness changes during contact lens wear. The Contact Lens Journal, 5, pp. 3-10.

Abstract

A project is descibed in which changes in various corneal parameters during contact lens wear were measured while variables effecting these changes wre either controlled or their effect observed. Increases in central corneal thickness and thickness at four points in the corneal periphery are described. As well, the recovery of the corneal thickness change two hours after lens removal is described.

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.
