Corneal oxygen uptake under a soft contact lens in phakic and aphakic eyes.

Abstract

A simple and comfortable procedure is used to measure the decay of oxygen content of a soft contact lens on a human cornea when the anterior surface of the lens is blocked from further supply of oxygen. Calculations from this measurement give the steady-state oxygen tension under the soft contact lens and the oxygen flux into the cornea when the eye is open… (More)
