Overview

Written in a concise, practical, outline manner, Manual of Contact Lens Prescribing and Fitting, 3rd Edition follows the logical progression of patient care, from basic prefitting topics, through rigid lens, soft lenses and advanced/specialty issues. Valuable management information assists in fitting and problem-solving situations, and clinical pearls in every chapter highlight key points. The companion CD-ROM uses video, animation, and morphing to demonstrate the skills of movement and position that are necessary to correctly fit rigid contact lenses.

• Covers both rigid and soft contact lenses.
• Enhances the reader's understanding through video and animation on the CD-ROM.
• Begins with prefitting topics and ends with specialty topics, progressing logically as the optometrist would care for the patient.

• Two new chapters on patient selection and contact lens optics.
• Contributions from new authors and updating throughout to reflect the newest modalities and references.
• Thoroughly revised CD-ROM is more user-friendly for both the student and clinician, with additional color images and information on Soft Contacts and the Tear Film, Translating Bifocals (Multimedia), Keratoconus, and Post-Penetrating Keratoplasty.

The book contains predominantly black-and-white illustrations, with some color illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Brian Marshall, O.D.(Marshall Family Eye Care)
Description: This is the third edition of a comprehensive manual on prescribing and fitting contact lenses. A companion CD-ROM allows the user to visualize the contact lens fitting process. The last edition was published in 2000.
Purpose: The stated purpose is to provide cutting edge information on the latest contact lens fitting and clinical techniques using a multimedia approach. This is a very worthwhile approach and allows the user to observe first hand important dynamic fitting concepts.
Audience: This manual is written for optometrists and students. All of the contributors are well known and respected in the area of contact lenses, many with academic affiliations.
Features: This book contains current information on all clinical topics related to the fitting and management of contact lenses. Included are instructions for proper patient selection, fitting concepts of various contact lenses, and helpful problem solving information. Five new chapters in this edition cover new contact lens technologies and concepts. The CD-ROM has been expanded and includes a worthwhile exercise where the viewer can go through the fitting process and see the effect of different lenses on the same eye.
Assessment: What sets this book apart is the interactive CD-ROM. It will never replace actually fitting contact lenses, but the student can visualize the dynamic fitting process in a variety of real-life situations. After going though the different activities of the CD-ROM, the student will be more confident in the clinical setting. Even without the CD-ROM, new additions to this third edition make it a must have book for anyone learning how to fit contact lenses. I only wish this was available when I was a student!
Booknews
The 29 chapters in this handbook cover the uses of lenses in orthokeratology, post-penetrating keratoplasty, and keratoconus fitting. The second edition features eight new multimedia chapters for use with the CD-ROM, which contains 90 video, morphing, and animation segments. Annotation c.
