Monovision: the patient's perspective
We surveyed a group of 60 presbyopic subjects following eight weeks of monovision contact lens wear. The questions focussed on satisfaction with various aspects of visual performance, performance when driving, and general questions related to contact lens wear such as lens handling, care and maintenance and lens comfort. The subjects reported relatively high levels of satisfaction with visual performance, except in low light levels. Driving with monovision was also considered to be significantly worse at night than during daylight. Relatively few of the subjects had difficulties with lens handling, care and maintenance or lens comfort.
Impact and interest:
Citation countsare sourced monthly fromand 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.
