4 STAR DOODY'S REVIEW!
"There are many books available on the topic of visual perception; however this...continues to be the gold standard. It is very detailed but structured in a format that is easy to follow and understand. It does a wonderful job of incorporating basic science with clinical applications and understanding. This is a mandatory book for every optometry student or any student interested in learning about how the human eye perceives the world around us."--Doody's Review Service
