Overview

The Basic Bookshelf for Eyecare Professionals is a series that provides fundamental and advanced material with a clinical approach to clinicians and students. A special effort was made to include information needed for the certification exams in ophthalmic and optometric assisting, as well as for surgical assistants, opticians, plus low vision, and contact lens examiners.

Beginning with embryology, a topic rarely covered, this text covers each structure of the eye including; The Bony Orbit; Eyebrows, Eyelids, and the Lacrimal System; and Extraocular Muscles and the Globe. In addition to explaining the anatomy of the structure, the physiology of various structures, systems are also explained, including the visual pathway, the inflammatory response, immunology, binocular vision, refractive errors, and accommodation. Emphasis is on normal anatomy and function, which will help the reader recognize abnormal situations.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Robert S. Weinberg, MD (Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center)
Description: This volume, part of a series of softbound short texts for ophthalmic or optometric assistants and ophthalmic photographers, primarily covers the anatomy of the eye and surrounding structures. There are also chapters on inflammation, optics, and refractive disorders.
Purpose: The main purpose of this text is to help ophthalmic or optometric assistants or technicians prepare for certification exams.
Audience: It is written for those who are studying to be ophthalmic or optometric assistants or technicians. It can also serve as a review source for those already working in the field. Each of the four main authors is an experienced ophthalmic technologist. Some of the chapters have additional contributors whose credentials are not provided. The book meets the authors' objective of providing an elementary text for ophthalmic or optometric assistants.
Features: Following an elementary chapter on ocular embryology, ocular anatomy is covered, with an emphasis on the clinical importance of anatomic structures. Clinical application is also covered in the ocular physiology section. Each chapter begins with a section entitled "Key Points," a useful aid for the reader. A unique feature of the book is simplicity, as well as the authors' attempts to provide clinical relevance of basic material. There is unevenness in the level of sophistication of the text, with awkward use of parenthetical phrases, inserted almost apologetically, to provide elementary definitions in some chapters. Radiographic illustrations in the orbital chapter need arrows and more explanatory legends, and appear to be included without complete explanation in the text. Errors and omissions should be corrected. These include the following: corneal thickness is .53 not 5.3 mm (p. 46); the term anesthesiometer is used rather than aesthesiometer (p. 51) and the term is not listed in the index, but is listed as corneal sensitivity test, with the wrong page; scleral thickness (p. 43), corneal endothelial cell counts as used clinically (p. 49), and the working distance for using a direct ophthalmascope to examine the vitreous (p. 650) are omitted.
Assessment: This is a useful, reasonably priced text for those studying to be ophthalmic or optometric assistants or technicians. Information is mostly accurate, with a few errors or omissions that could easily be corrected.
