Changes in corneal curvature associated with contact lens wear



Changes in corneal curvature associated with contact lens wear



Journal of the American Optometric Association 50(3): 375-377



Brief answers are given to 5 complex questions about the corneal curvature of contact lens wearers. Short-term (circadian) and long-term (withdrawal) changes are significant time variables which are often overlooked.
