COntact lens design for comsetic purposes began in the late 1880's as an art of compromise. One hundred years later, some would say it has advanced to a science of compromise. Perhaps the only real difference is the presence of more tests and numbers today. Still, there is evidence that some parameter tradeoffs are becoming more managable, and some functional compromises less severe.

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.
