Ophthalmic salines and the acidity question
What acidity (minimum pH) will most patients tolerate when using ophthalmic salines? After sone decades of trying to answer that question (and many continue to try), it is becoming increasingly evident that the question rather then the answer may be flawed.
It is now evident that both patient and saline are variables within the problem; the patient through inherent (genetically based) differences, and gradual physiological change (i.e. aging and environmental history); and the solutions through physical and chemical shifts over time. It is with those changes asociated with the ophthalmic salines that his study was concerned.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and 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 theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
