A Handbook for Optometrists


Intensely practical and highly accessible, this essential handbook provides a key reference for any optometrist needing to give objective information to patients considering laser eye surgery. It follows a typical patient journey through the LASIK procedure and covers the normal outcomes as well as any complications. All aspects of the optometrist's role are covered, from pre-selection, referral and data collection through to counselling, procedures and aftercare. If you want to give your patients an informed opinion about refractive surgery or are co-managing LASIK patients, you cannot be without this information.
