Immunoblotting and tear sampling techniques for the study of contact lens-induced variations in tear protein profiles

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)

Abstract

More information on the biochemical interactions taking place between the tear film and the contact lens is required to further our understanding of the causative mechanisms behind the symptoms of dryness and grittiness often experienced by contact lens wearers. These symptoms can often lead to an intolerance to contact lens wear.
