Grading scales for contact lens complications
Efron, Nathan (1998) Grading scales for contact lens complications. Ophthalmic and Physiological Optics, 18(2), pp. 182-186.
Grading scales have been developed to assist practitioners in recording the level of severity of ocular complications of contact lens wear. Eight common complications are depicted in five levels of severity--from grade 0 (normal) to grade 4 (severe). The intersubject variance in grading was determined to be 1.0 scale units, which by coincidence concurs exactly with the key design strategy of the grading scales that each grading step of 1.0 corresponds to a clinically significant difference in severity.
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.
