Contact Lenses (Google eBook)
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.
Perfect for the optometric and ophthalmic tech, this well-illustrated text includes detailed how-to's that will make contact lens fitting and patient education easy. The author starts with ocular anatomy and how it is affected by contact lens wear. Other topics include lens design and materials, patient selection and examination procedures, and fitting of both soft and rigid lenses (including astigmatic designs). Information on patient instruction, care of products, lens verification/modification, complications, and special fitting situations are also covered.
