A tacit assumption, often made by patients and practitioners alike, is that the properties of contact lens solutions (e.g. relative acidity, buffering capacity, osmolarity, viscosity...) are dictated directly by the intended use(s) listed on a product's label. But for the assumption to be correct, another assumption might be made as well, that is, that there should be a single "best" combination of properties to accomplish the label stated mission. Another way of saying this is that solutions in a particular use class might be expected to hover within narrow limits, around a set of ideal (pH, buffer, viscosity..) values, and consequently would end up looking very similar to one another in their property profiles.

Impact and interest:

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.
