This text represents a complete rewrite of the third edition. The authors, along with more than 20 other contributors and reviewers, have assembled a book with the goal of providing a practical and organized approach to fitting rigid and soft contact lenses. It covers everything from basic anatomy and physiology of the cornea to the use of contact lenses for medical and cosmetic treatment. The book provides a historical background on contact lens materials and instrumentation, as well as an overview of new materials and technologies. The text is very well illustrated, with many figures and tables included. It also contains a complete review of the use of instrumentation needed for the fitting, evaluation, modification, and verification of all types of contact lenses.
