The inter-relationship of corneal thickness and shape changes

Bailey, Ian L. & Carney, Leo G. (1972) The inter-relationship of corneal thickness and shape changes. Journal of the American Optometric Association, 43(6), pp. 669-672.


The relationship between corneal thickness and corneal curvature changes was investigated by modifying the chemical environment of the cornea by the wearing of different types of contact lenses. Large corneal thickness increases occurred without concomitant change in corneal curvature.

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.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
