Synopsis:

The Basic Bookshelf for Eyecare Professionals is a series that provides fundamental and advanced material with a clinical approach to clinicians and students. A special effort was made to include information needed for the certification exams in ophthalmic and optometric assisting, as well as for surgical assistants, opticians, plus low vision, and contact lens examiners.

Beginning with embryology, a topic rarely covered, this text covers each structure of the eye including; The Bony Orbit; Eyebrows, Eyelids, and the Lacrimal System; and Extraocular Muscles and the Globe. In addition to explaining the anatomy of the structure, the physiology of various structures, systems are also explained, including the visual pathway, the inflammatory response, immunology, binocular vision, refractive errors, and accommodation. Emphasis is on normal anatomy and function, which will help the reader recognize abnormal situations.

About the Author: Al Lens, COMT, began his career in ophthalmology in 1986 at the Gimbel Eye Centre in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. He developed a comprehensive training program to teach new ophthalmic assistants at the clinic where he worked. He then began lecturing at various conferences across North America and Saudi Arabia. His other published works include Ophthalmic Assisting Guide; Optics, Retinoscopy and Refractometry, Second Edition; LASIK for Technicians; and Cataract and Glaucoma for Eyecare Paraprofessionals. Currently, Al works at various clinics in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

Sheila Coyne Nemeth, COMT, received her Bachelor of Arts degree in English literature from the University of New Hampshire and graduated from the Boston University Ophthalmic Technology program. Her career path has included working with Phoenix Indian Medical Center in Phoenix, Arizona, and as a program director of ophthalmic technology at the Eastern Virginia Medical School in Norfolk, Virginia. Currently, she resides in Corrales, New Mexico, where she has a consulting company called Eye of the Wolf LLC. She has been coauthor and researcher on multiple National Institute of Health research grants, with an interest in image processing analysis of retinal images. Her husband George and her two teenagers, Ben and Natalie, keep her quite active.

Janice K. Ledford, COMT, has become well known in ophthalmic assisting circles, especially among those studying for certification exams. Her many text books and articles continue to contribute to the field of eye care. In addition to writing, editing, and teaching, Jan works for Dr. Charles Kirby as well as the Veterans Administration Eye Clinic in Asheville, North Carolina. She lives in the mountains of North Carolina with her two cats. Next time you see her, she would love to tell you about her kids and grandkids.
