Conjunctival sensitivity has been studied using Cochet & Bonnet's esthesiometer on a series of 102 normal eyes. Measurements were performed on 18 areas of each eye. The cornea was found to be the most sensitive, after which followed the lid margin. The caruncle was less sensitive, and the conjunctiva the least so. The mean values found in the stated four regions were 12 mg, 53-58 mg, 63 mg, and 83-96 mg per 0.0113 mm*, respectively. No local differences were noticed within the conjunctiva nor within the lid m…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
