The Contact Lens Manual continues to meet the needs of a new generation of optometrists, dispensing opticians, contact lens practitioners and students who require clear and reliable information for fitting a complete range of contact lenses.

The fourth edition of this best-selling classic, now in full colour throughout, provides the most up-to-date guidance in all aspects of today’s lenses in a practical and easy to use manual. Featuring new developments in lens types, care regimes, current practices, and electronic access to brand new video footage as well as a range of learning tools, this manual offers a complete package to help readers expand their lens knowledge, improve fitting and optimise patient care.


From the reviews of previous editions:

"The format is an intensely practical, hands-on guide to fitting all lens types, from straightforward sphericals through to sealed sclerals… Each chapter is punctuated with different boxes containing practical advice, general advice, rules of thumb and warnings…Unlike most textbooks, it would be quite possible to pick up this book and read it from cover to cover. In fact, I can recommend it." Optometry Today
