Published Reviews

    "The contributors and editor have produced a very well organized, direct, simply written, meticulously indexed textbook. Their attention to detail is remarkable...Given the high prevalence of ocular anomalies among optometrists and optometry students, this kind of practical advice would be most welcome."

    Opmtometry and Vision Science, 2009



    "This book is an excellent reference for optometry students and clinical teachers. It might even make the experienced practitioner think about his or her choices of clinical tests."

    Clinical and Experimental Optometry, 2004

    "Clinical procedures in primary eye care (CP) is, in my opinion, an excellent introductory text for all students studying optometry, especially those in their formative years as students. The authors have done a sterling job in putting together a text that introduces different examination procedures, how to conduct or perform the procedure… I recommend this text unreservedly to all students of the optometric profession."

    The South African Optometrist, 2004

    The target audience for this book is clearly the student of optometry. All primary-care opto¬metric educators should consider this book for their students. Both instructor and student can access various online resources, such as an image collec¬tion, videos and downloads, either directly through the Elsevier site or via virtual classroom software, such as Blackboard. A point that appeals to students is that the book is written as though in dialogue with them and it con¬tains a good index. This new interactive book, with integration of scientific justification, gives practitioners the excuse needed to compare themselves against the best on everyday primary-care testing.
