Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Christopher Snyder, OD, MS (University of Alabama at Birmingham)
Description: This is a useful book that has been described by the author as "notes on the optics of contact lenses for busy contact lens practitioners."
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a useful treatise on both practical optics of contact lenses and the incorporation of such optics and optical principles into contact lens designs and lens on-eye fitting.
Audience: The book is intended for students in the field of opticianry, optometry and ophthalmology — particularly in training for contact lens practice — as well as for the established practitioner as a strong reference in practice.
Features: The book includes numerous diagrams and equations of optics/mathematics but meets a stated goal of the author of using only basic trigonometry and algebra to cover the topics as simply as possible. This does not compromise the usefulness or the effectiveness of the text. Additionally, computer programs are included for optics and lens design calculations to avoid tedious calculations by hand for those who are interested in working through principles, designs, and lens fitting relationships.
Assessment: This is a useful book for students and practitioners in the field of contact lens practice. The book is clearly written, complete, and practical and would be a useful addition for the library, students, and practitioners.

Booknews
A book/disk package on optics and lens design in contact lenses, for undergraduate optometry students and contact lens practitioners. Reviews basic visual optics as a foundation for material on contact lens systems, measurement of the cornea, astigmatism and corneal toricity, and checking lens specification with various devices. A section devoted to computer programs provides source code allowing practitioners access to solutions for fitting problems. This second edition contains new chapters on aspheric surfaces and surface design. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
