Review:

“With its ‘hands on’ approach, it offers much to anyone involved in optometry and dispensing optics...For anyone studying dispensing optics, it clearly presents and profusely illustrates (in both pictures and examples) many aspects of their study. The many pictures and clear diagrams, including colour plates supporting the contact lens text, complete a worthy addition to the shelf of anyone studying or practicing in the sphere of professional optics today.

Duncan Counter, Dispensing Optics, November 2007
"The style of simple phraseology and examples in the text means of clearly putting across a subject which many think of as dry and boring. This book tries to dispel this myth and does, on balance, succeed...Each chapter has ‘concluding points’ which are a good summary of what you have read...It is targeted at both undergraduate and newly qualified optometrists, contact lens opticians and dispensing opticians and I believe it is set at the correct level"

Judith Morris

Book Description Elsevier Health Sciences. Paperback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, Clinical Optics and Refraction: A Guide for Optometrists, Contact Lens Opticians and Dispensing Opticians, Andrew Keirl, Caroline Christie, Specially written for students by authors with many years experience in teaching optics and dispensing, "Clinical Optics and Refraction" gives a concise view of the subject which avoids excessive emphasis on theory and instead concentrates on a practical and clinically based approach. With the requirements of UK optometry and dispensing optician syllabuses in mind, the authors give a clear account of the field of spectacle and contact lens optics in relation to the clinical context. The text contains numerous how-to-do-it worked examples, based on recent past examination questions, and many clear line illustrations to give students maximum help in understanding the practical issues in what can often be a challenging area of the curriculum. As well as being a must for optometry students and student dispensing opticians, "Clinical Optics and Refraction" will also be essential reading for qualified dispensing opticians entering training and practice as contact lens opticians. Practising optometrists will also find it invaluable as quick and accessible reference. Bookseller Inventory # B9780750688895
