Corneal topography and monocular diplopia following near work

Bowman, Kenneth J., Smith, George, & Carney, Leo G. (1978) Corneal topography and monocular diplopia following near work. American Journal of Optometry and Physiological Optics, 55(12), pp. 818-823.



Monocular diplopia, reported by a subject following near work, was shown to be caused by changes in the corneal topography. Prior slit lamp biomicroscopy had revealed no corneal abnormality. The degree of corneal distortion and ray tracing calculations confirmed the presence and position of the resultant diplopia.

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.
