It is [...] particularly pleasing to see this volume on contact lens optics. Modern studies on contact lenses tend to concentrate on the influence of lenses on ocular physiology, so a book on the optical considerations is particularly welcome.
This book is [...] very comprehensive and covers most of what a student or practitioner might want to know on the topic.
I would heartily recommend this book to anyone who is interested in contact lenses.
