Contact Lens Correction of Visual Loss in Keratoconus

Carney, Leo G. (1982) Contact Lens Correction of Visual Loss in Keratoconus. Acta Ophthalmologica, 60(5), pp. 795-802.


Visual acuity and contrast threshold functions of 5 bilateral keratoconic patients were measured following spectacle correction and rigid contact lens correction. Visual function was improved by contact lens correction, but some contrast at attenuation remained. This residual loss could not always be related to routine visual acuity findings.

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.
