Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Brian Marshall, O.D.(Marshall Family Eye Care)
Description: This book sets out to deliver the needed tools required to manage the unique health-related problems that can occur by those who wear contact lenses. It also goes further by offering advice on how contact lenses may be used as a therapy in non-contact-lens-related diseases and ocular conditions.
Purpose: This book is intended to present the relationships between ocular disease and wearing contact lenses. The authors discuss ways to prevent contact lens related problems from occurring. The authors do a good job of meeting their objectives as stated in the preface. However, the title of the book is somewhat misleading in that the book falls short of providing many "treatment" options as the title suggests.
Audience: This book is targeted to eye care practitioners and residents. The book is authored by well-respected clinicians in the field of contact lenses and ocular disease, many having academic affiliations.
Features: An adequate number of pertinent illustrations and tables are used throughout the text. However, a few color photos would have been appreciated. Each chapter begins with key words and ends with a comprehensive conclusion. As with the entire book series, "clinical pearls" are scattered in each chapter. These short and concise pearls of information provide the reader with practical chair-side information. They are grouped in handy boxes that allow quick access to the important points.
Assessment: The title of this book suggests very lofty goals and is a very needed book in the field. However, it fails to live up to its grandiose expectations. This is one book that cannot be judged by its cover. The book does contain some very good management tools, however. The skills necessary are nicely described to assist the practitioner who is engaged in a busy contact lens or general practice environment.
