Thoroughly revised and updated—and now in full color for the first time—this manual is a complete, current, and convenient "how-to" guide to fitting, evaluating, and troubleshooting contact lenses, particularly specialty contact lens designs. The book is the perfect quick reference to consult during a patient's examination and a user-friendly study guide for boards. Each chapter includes clinical cases, nomograms, and a proficiency checklist.

This edition has over 200 new illustrations, including 169 full-color photographs. Coverage includes new information on silicone hydrogels, disposable lenses, and new lens designs, materials, and care systems, as well as significant updates on clinical topics such as orthokeratology and bifocals. The contributors represent sixteen schools and colleges of optometry.
