Abstract

To evaluate the effect of soft contact lens type on the in vivo tear film surface quality (TFSQ) on daily disposable lenses and to establish whether two recently developed techniques for noninvasive measurement of TFSQ can distinguish between different contact lens types.

5 citations in Scopus
Search Google Scholar™
5 citations in Web of Science®

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.
