The term lubricant is one of the more popular descriptors found on solution labels today. Taken literally, ity promises a reduction of friction between contact lens and tissue. But, in fact, several other effects are commonly expected as well. These include the formation of a cushioning layer, the facilitation of wetting, a reduction of sticking, and, in general a more pleasant reception of the lens on insertion.

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.
