Laboratory evaluation of blended lenticular aphakic lenses
Atchison, David A. (1988) Laboratory evaluation of blended lenticular aphakic lenses. Ophthalmic and Physiological Optics, 8(3), pp. 275-286.
Six types of blended lenticular aspheric lenses for the correction of aphakia were assessed with respect to mass, spectacle magnification, off-axis power errors, peripheral distortion, visual field size and cosmetic appearance. Relative to spherical surfaced lenses, these lenses showed considerably reduced mass, reduced peripheral distortion, increased visual field size and improved cosmetic appearance. All but one type showed considerably reduced off-axis power errors, but none of the lenses showed much reduction in spectacle magnification. In general, the manufacturers’ claims made in favour of the blended lenticular lenses were supported.
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.
