Thoroughly revised and updated, this popular book provides a comprehensive yet easy to read guide to modern contact lens practice. Beautifully re-designed in a clean, contemporary layout, this second edition presents relevant and up-to-date information in a systematic manner, with a logical flow of subject matter from front to back.

This book wonderfully captures the ‘middle ground’ in the contact lens field ... somewhere between a dense research-based tome and a basic fitting guide. As such, it is ideally suited for both students and general eye care practitioners who require a practical, accessible and uncluttered account of the contact lens field.

  • Outlines a rational clinical approach to modern contact lens fitting - practical advice for the clinic and the classroom 
  • Logical structure and systematic layout, with relevant chapters grouped into coherent sections for easy reference 
  • Up-to-date for accurate information 
  • Chapters are contextualised through cross-referencing - helping to reflect the relative importance of different topics 
  • Provides an 'historical time line' of contact lens development and explains the current global situation 
  • Explains how contact lenses are fabricated, designed, manufactured and measured 
  • Reviews the scientific principles that underpin the clinical application of contact lenses
  • New chapter on daily disposable contact lenses.
  • Contributing authors comprising optometrists, ophthalmologists, dispensing opticians, industry experts, researchers and clinicians – all of whom are true international leaders in their sub-specialty areas.
  • Many new line diagrams and clinical photographs to illustrate, inform and explain the concepts outlined in the text.
  • Special consideration is given to the most popular lens replacement systems – daily, two-weekly and monthly.
  • Extensive appendices to assist chair-side decision making in everyday practice.
  • Efron Grading Scales for Contact Lens Complications.
  • Evidence-based approach with numerous up-to-date references at the end of each chapter.

Review:

"...The editor tells us in the preface that the aim is to produce a book that will provide both students and clinicians with a substantial, evidence based and balanced overview of the field of contact Lenses I think the book has achieved these aims .
It provides an excellent overview of the contemporary contact lens field and is highly recommended ." Associate Professor Michael J Collins, School of Optometry Queensland University of Technology, Clinical and Experimental Optometry, May 2002
