Changes in corneal curvature and subjective refraction of soft contact lens wearers



Changes in corneal curvature and subjective refraction of soft contact lens wearers



American Journal of Optometry and Physiological Optics 52(6): 405-413



Changes in corneal curvature and subjective refraction were found to occur in some wearers of N & N lathe-cut soft contact lenses. These changes appear to be the result of any one of a number of factors, including a relatively steep lens-cornea relationship, over-wearing of lenses and inadequate blinking habits.
