A MODEL STUDY OF FACIAL INJURY CAUSED BY IMPACT WHILE WEARING AN OPTHALMIC FRAME

Damage to facial tissue caused by an opthalmic frame when there is impact to the face was studied by means of a paraffin-covered mannequin head. Under mild conditions of impact it was easily observed that metal frames and metal components do more tissue damage than is done by a zylframe. A series of the commonly dispensed frames was compared for facial injury potential caused by impact to the face. /Author/
