While the aging of an ophthalmic solution may be viewed subjectively as a series of departures from original chemical and physical values, it is, of course, a much more complex matter clinically. The ultmate scales of solution aging also must take those factors into account that will affect the patient population and/or the lens in any significant way, e.g. toxicity, contamination, lens despoilation, loss of comfort. Since tissue tolerance and lens vulnerabilities are highly individualized, however, due to personal histories, genetics, sensitization, idiosyncracies), and the vast number of eye, lens, and care systemn combinations, the formulator (and through him, the clinician) must fall back on those chemical and physical departures as practical (first order) indices of risk.

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.
