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 every eyecare practice, this handy manual describes the many types of instruments used in ophthalmic and optometric offices. Over 60 different instruments are explained in detail. Each one has a general description, in addition to its use and purpose, and maintenance issues such as minor repairs and cleaning. The instruments include those used to determine visual acuity, the refractive state of the eye, the binocular status of the eye, intraocular pressure, visual field, and the health of the retina. Equipment found in the optical lab is also discussed. This helpful guide will take you through the ever-evolving dynamics of eyecare equipment and its maintenance.
