Contact lenses and the blink

Carney, Leo G. & Hill, Richard M. (1986) Contact lenses and the blink. The Contact Lens Journal, 14, pp. 3-6.


A cummulative method of analysing blink frequency and stability over time and with and without a contact lens on the eye is used to illustrate the range of responses which can occur. Among these least anticipated patterns seen were increases in blink rate in both hydrophilic and rigid lens cases, and the unexplained adaptation of a new and very steady rate without obvious provocation.

Search Google Scholar™

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.
