The pH question, and some answers

Carney, Leo G., Brezinski, Stephen D., & Hill, Richard M. (1986) The pH question, and some answers. Contact Lens Spectrum, 1, pp. 63-65.

Abstract

Patients seem to respond quite differently to solutions of particular pH's. The same can be said of certain hydrophilic contact lenses, which in the presence of "non neutral" pH environments may shift in their water contents, curvatures, and oxygen transmissivities. The choice of pH value of an ophthalmic solution might then seem limited to a rather narrow "safe" range.

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.

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