Abstract

To determine the ocular biometric characteristics during the menstrual cycle using the optical low-coherence reflectometry (OLCR) biometry. Twenty-two healthy women between the ages of 19 and 36 years with regular menstrual cycles were enrolled in this prospective study. Subjects with irregular menstrual cycles, those taking contraceptive pills, those with a history of ocular surgery or trauma, and women unable to cooperate with the ocular biometry device were excluded from this study. A complete ophthalmic examination was performed between 8.30 and 10.30 am for all participants. Also, central corneal thickness, axial length, anterior chamber depth, lens thickness, and keratometric measurements were made at the same time using the OLCR device. Measurements were taken at the beginning of the cycle (1-3 days), at ovulation (12-16 days), and at the end of the cycle (26-32 days). The mean age of the participants was 22.86±4.22 (range: 18-36) years. The difference in central corneal thickness, axial length, anterior chamber depth, lens thickness, and keratometry values were not statistically significant during the menstrual cycle. The ocular biometric parameters did not significantly vary during the menstrual cycle according to the OLCR biometry.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 01 July 2015.
All research outputs
#7,836,218
of 12,488,808 outputs
Outputs from Clinical Ophthalmology
#708
of 1,597 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#124,202
of 233,997 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Clinical Ophthalmology
#38
of 87 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,488,808 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 23rd percentile – i.e., 23% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,597 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 3.2. This one is in the 43rd percentile – i.e., 43% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 233,997 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 37th percentile – i.e., 37% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 87 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 50% of its contemporaries.
