Cosmetic tinted soft lenses, which were prescribed in 4-8 per cent of soft lens fits between 1997-2001, have declined in use and since 2003 have accounted for less than 2 per cent of soft lens fits. In general, there has been a slow but steady increase in the rate of prescribing for presbyopia.

Impact and interest:

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.
