Abstract only

We have investigates the antero-posterios position of the eye during normal blinking, gentle and hard eye lid closing and voluntary lid widening with 12 young subjects. Computer-assisted video analysis was used to measure relative eye position. Involuntary blinks were accompanied by retraction of the eye, which was of similar magnitude to the retraction measured with lids restrained, while the lids of the contralateral eye gently closed. Eye retraction is accentuated with hard voluntary lid closure, while voluntary lid fissure widening produced slight proptosis of the globe. Preliminary data suggests a small degree of instability of antero-posterior eye position between blinks. Our results are consistent with previous studies of the association between antero-posterior eye position and lid fissure width.

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.
