Visual Loss in Keratoconus

Carney, Leo G. (1982) Visual Loss in Keratoconus. Archives of Ophthalmology, 100(8), pp. 1282-1285.


Visual acuity and contrast threshold functions of 5 patients with bilateral keratoconus were measured following optimal spectacle correction. Contrast attenuation occurred before visual acuity loss, and its nature could not always be predicted by the visual acuity findings. Routine visual acuity tests do not describe well the extent of the visual disability in keratoconus.

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.
