From the Publisher:

A good understanding of the optical principles behind contact lenses and their surface design is essential for successful contact lens fitting. This book provides an ideal introduction and in clear and straightforward terms, covers the topics in order to increase the awareness of what is being attempted and what can be achieved in clinical practice. New for the second edition: - Two new chapters on aspheric surfaces and contact lens surface design have Been added - The remaining chapters have been extensively revised and updated with the addition of new material - The book contains completely revised and extended computer program listings for the type of calculations that would otherwise be long and tedious.

It is possible for example to quickly decide on what front optic zone diameter and what front peripheral radius to order when a contact lens requires lenticulating. * A 3.5'' computer disk of the lens calculation programs running in DOS QBasic or QuickBasic is included with the book essential reading for all undergraduate optometry students, this book is also intended to extend the abilities of contact lens practitioners in coping with the problems of everyday contact lens fitting.
