Practical and user friendly text
Over 190 clear line diagrams

“With its ‘hands on’ approach, it offers much to anyone involved in optometry and dispensing optics…For anyone studying dispensing optics, it clearly presents and profusely illustrates (in both pictures and examples) many aspects of their study. The many pictures and clear diagrams, including colour plates supporting the contact lens text, complete a worthy addition to the shelf of anyone studying or practicing in the sphere of professional optics today.”
Duncan Counter, Dispensing Optics, November 2007
"The style of simple phraseology and examples in the text means of clearly putting across a subject which many think of as dry and boring. This book tries to dispel this myth and does, on balance, succeed…Each chapter has ‘concluding points’ which are a good summary of what you have read…It is targeted at both undergraduate and newly qualified optometrists, contact lens opticians and dispensing opticians and I believe it is set at the correct level"
