Validation of a New Instrument for Measurement of Flexible Contact Lenses

Carney, Leo G., Ungerer, Jan L., & Brennan, Noel A. (1985) Validation of a New Instrument for Measurement of Flexible Contact Lenses. Australian Journal of Optometry, 63(3), pp. 100-103.



A newly developed instrument for the measurement of flexible contact lens parameters incorporating an autostigmatic microscope and optimised light collection techniques, is evaluated. The instrument measures back and front central optic radii and centre thickness of the contact lens, and these measurements can be used to determine back vertex powers. The instrument is shown to provide reliable and repeatable measures of lens parameters.

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.
