Abstract:

To test the performance of a recently developed MPK a prospective pre-post study was conducted. 13 TFs using 2 types of MPKs were measured at baseline and then fitted with the new MPK and measured again at 3 weeks. MPK3 significantly outperformed the comparing MPKs on various parameters measured.
