Comparison of accommodation with rigid and flexible contact lenses

Carney, Leo G. & Woo, George C. (1977) Comparison of accommodation with rigid and flexible contact lenses. American Journal of Optometry and Physiological Optics, 54(9), pp. 595-597.


Measurements were made of the amplitude of accommodation for myopes wearing spectacles, rigid contact lenses, and flexible contact lenses. Both forms of contact lenses placed greater accommodative requirements on the myope than did spectacle correction, but no significant difference was found between the 2 types of contact lenses in this respect.

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.
