Thoroughly revised and updated, this popular book provides a comprehensive yet easy to read guide to modern contact lens practice. Beautifully re-designed in a clean, contemporary layout, this second edition presents relevant and up-to-date information in a systematic manner, with a logical flow of subject matter from front to back.
This book wonderfully captures the 'middle ground' in the contact lens field . somewhere between a dense research-based tome and a basic fitting guide.
