This little book is addressed to patients who are contemplating the purchase of contact lenses or who are already wearing them. The authors are associated with the University of Ulm, Germany, and have for a long time been interested in contact lenses.

The authors explain not only the purpose and function of contact lenses but also point out the difficulties of fitting and the problems of wearing these lenses. The language is concise and to the point; it should be understood by any layman. The illustrations are instructive, and the translation by Dr D. MacKeen is faultless.
