This is an excellent book which deals with the clinical aspects of contact lens practice. Written entirely by ophthalmologists, it was published originally as one of the quarterly International Ophthalmology Clinics (Little, Brown & Company) but has been republished under this title to make it available to a larger group of interested clinicians. It condenses in one volume a great deal of interesting and useful information, from the history and development of contact lenses through their present clinical status to a consideration of the future potential of these lenses. There are 14 sections discussing details of the examination of the patient, determination of specifications, and modifications of the lenses. The physiology, pathology, pharmacology, and applied optics of contact lenses also are considered. There is a particularly thorough and thought-provoking section on contact lenses for aphakia. As in any cooperative effort of this type there are some minor duplications and differences
