The clinical importance of spectacle lens base curves
Atchison, David A. (1986) The clinical importance of spectacle lens base curves. Clinical and Experimental Optometry, 69(1), pp. 31-35.
This paper discusses the importance of spectacle lens base curves to the practice of optometry. The base curve is defined. Principles of spectacle lens design, and the role of the base curve in spectacle lens design, are explained. Current practices of manufacturers and surfacing laboratories concerning base curves are discussed, as is the role of the optometrist in specifying and measuring lens curves.
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.
