Evidence on scleral contact lenses and intraocular pressure
Administrators only | Request a copy from author
It has been hypothesised that scleral contact lens wear may potentially elevate intraocular pressure (IOP) as a result of post-lens fluid forces exacerbated by eyelid tension, or ocular versions that alter the lens fit and result in corneal bearing or increased conjunctival and scleral tissue compression. A number of studies have investigated the influence of short-term scleral contact lens wear upon IOP, using a variety of experimental paradigms. On average, in young healthy adults wearing various types of modern scleral lenses for relatively short periods (30 minutes to 8 hours), the changes in IOP are typically modest (<1.5 mmHg).
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.
