About the Author

Janice K. Ledford, COMT, who probably won't answer you unless you call her Jan, has been in the field of eye care since 1982. Through on-the-job training, self study, and wonderful mentors, she advanced through the ranks to obtain her certification as an Ophthalmic Medical Technologist in 1988. She currently works part-time at the Charles George VA Medical Center in Asheville, NC, and with Dr. Charles Kirby at both Biltmore Vision Center and East Side Optical, also in Asheville.

The Little Eye Book, Second Edition is her 17th book for the eye care professional (all published by SLACK Incorporated). She is also the coauthor of The Crystal Clear Guide to Sight for Life (Starburst Publishers, 1996), which is written for the layperson. Journals that have published her work include Contact Lens Spectrum, Ophthalmology, Annals of Ophthalmology and Glaucoma, The Journal of Ophthalmic Nursing and Technology, Phaco and Foldables, Ophthalmology World News, and Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. In 1993 she was awarded the Achievement in Ophthalmology by Alcon Surgical for coauthorship of the side approach cataract technique.

Jan’s writing talents are not limited to eye care or even to nonfiction. In addition to two novels, she has also published and/or won awards for her short stories and poetry.

Jan lives in the mountains of western North Carolina with her two cats, Angel and Nadia. Her son Collin is a college student at Southwestern Carolina Community College in Cullowhee, NC. Her oldest son T.J. is a Master at Arms in the U.S. Navy. Daughter-in-law Kelly and the grands (Katie and A.J.) live in Georgia.
