Clinical Manual of Contact Lenses
Edward S. Bennett, Vinita Allee Henry
J.B. Lippincott, Jan 1, 1994 - Contact lenses - 498 pages
Now in its thoroughly revised, updated Second Edition, this manual is a complete, current, and convenient "how-to" guide to fitting and caring for contact lens patients. The book is the perfect quick reference to consult during a patient's examination and a user-friendly study guide for boards. Sections on rigid ("hard") and hydrogel ("soft") lenses cover selection, fitting, lens care and patient education, verification, and problem-solving. A Challenging Cases section covers keratoconus, post-surgical fitting, orthokeratology, astigmatism, bifocal contact lenses, extended wear, aphakia, and management of lens-associated pathology. Each chapter includes clinical cases, nomograms, illustrations, and a Clinical Proficiency Checklist.
