Maintaining the clear and easily understood presentation of concepts that made previous editions so popular, this new edition of Dr. Grosvenor’s classic text contains updated information on refraction and binocular vision as well as contact lens practice, functional methods of myopia control, newly-developed methods of refractive surgery, and optometric co-management of ocular surgery. With the continued aging of the population an increasingly important influence on optometric practice, the low vision chapter (now entitled Geriatric Optometry and Vision Impairment) now includes greatly expanded discussions of age-related changes in refraction, visual acuity, binocular vision and ocular health. The comprehensive coverage of binocular vision problems, contact lens practice, optometric co-management, geriatric optometry, and vision impairment make this the ideal text for both introductory and advanced courses and a useful reference for the established practitioner.About the Author:
