Short term responses to soft contact lens corrections for presbyopia

Collins, Michael J., Brown, Brian, & Bowman, Kenneth J. (1989) Short term responses to soft contact lens corrections for presbyopia. Clinical and Experimental Optometry, 72, pp. 40-45.


Eleven subjects were each fitted with five different soft contact lens corrections for presbyopia. The correction types were distance contact lenses with lookover spectacles, concentric bifocals, monovision, modified monovision and progressive bifocal contact lenses. Subjects were asked to rate each contact lens correction in terms of distance, intermediate, near and peripheral vision, confidence when walking and climbing stairs, eye-hand co-ordination, performance on work tasks, vision difficulties in bright and dim ambient illumination and the correction most preferred for daily wear. There were few significant differences between ratings for the different corrections. Monovision, modified monovision and the concentric bifocal corrections were the preferred options for daily wear

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.
