All optometrists practicing in the Unites States should read this book. You’re probably practicing some form of negligence without knowing it. This book will help you fix that. This book is quite easy to read. I'm impressed that a JD can write a book in such a simple language, which is what I like about it. First part of the book covers optometry law of the US. Then, it goes into the laws of each state from A to Z. I keep it in my office for good reference. Besides the malpractice prevention info that I find beneficial, what I like is towards two third of the book. There you find different forms: informed consent forms, refusal forms, referral forms, surgical forms, other forms that you can copy and use for your office. Even these forms are written in a simple and concise language. Patients will feel more friendly reading and signing the forms. The only little thing I'd wish was that the "Summary of Optometry Laws by State" section was not written in all CAP's. But that's just minor thing, and it's my personal preference. Overall, I'd give this book an A+. It deserves to be read by all practicing optometrists. If you're an optometry student about to go into clinical, I would highly recommend this book as well. It will help you start a healthy habit of practicing optometry. It is worth the investment.
