Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

This comprehensive text and reference addresses the full scope of contemporary contact lens science and practice. With two expert editors and 100 first-rate contributors, the book presents practitioners and students in optometry and ophthalmology with key facts on corneal anatomy, recent research, contact lens design, patient evaluation, clinical applications, patient education, and complications of contact lens wear. More than 600 illustrations complement the text.

Clinical Contact Lens Practice will be the standard text for required contact lens courses and will be an invaluable everyday reference for practitioners.
