Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics.

In vivo detection of drugs in the anterior eye

Wilson, W. and Miller, J. and Wilson, C.G. and Uttamchandani, D.G. (2002) In vivo detection of drugs in the anterior eye. Investigative Ophthalmology and Visual Science, 43 (E-Abst). ISSN 0146-0404

Abstract

The purpose of this study was to design and test a corneal contact lens which effectively turns the anterior chamber of the eye into a cuvette, enabling absorption measurements to be undertaken. Methodology and results are given and it is concluded that this device will enable ocular pharmacologists to measure drug concentrations in the anterior eye by either absorption or fluorescence spectroscopy.
