View all copies of this ISBN edition:

The third edition of Contact Lens Optics & Lens Design is clearer and more accessible than ever before. Without assuming detailed prior knowledge of optics and ophthalmic lenses, Professor Douthwaite provides a straightforward introduction and, moving from a restatement of basic knowledge, builds solutions to the vast majority of contact lens optics problems likely to be encountered by the student or practitioner.

With a new design including colour, Contact Lens Optics & Lens Design has been thoroughly updated and contains new for this third edition:

. integral coverage of soft lenses
. information on the latest corneal measuring techniques
. expanded coverage of astigmatism and corneal toricity
. a new chapter on presbyopia
. separate treatment of orthokeratology

Also included on the accompanying CD is a completely revised and extended set of invaluable computer programs, which allow the student and busy practitioner to bypass tedious calculations in arriving at best fits.

The new Contact Lens Optics & Lens Design is indispensable reading for all undergraduate optometry students and will also be an invaluable guide for contact lens practitioners in helping them to cope rapidly and efficiently with the problems of everyday contact lens fitting.

It is [...] particularly pleasing to see this volume on contact lens optics. Modern studies on contact lenses tend to concentrate on the influence of lenses on ocular physiology, so a book on the optical considerations is particularly welcome.

This book is [...] very comprehensive and covers most of what a student or practitioner might want to know on the topic.

I would heartily recommend this book to anyone who is interested in contact lenses.

From the Publisher:

A good understanding of the optical principles behind contact lenses and their surface design is essential for successful contact lens fitting. This book provides an ideal introduction and in clear and straightforward terms, covers the topics in order to increase the awareness of what is being attempted and what can be achieved in clinical practice. New for the second edition: - Two new chapters on aspheric surfaces and contact lens surface design have Been added - The remaining chapters have been extensively revised and updated with the addition of new material - The book contains completely revised and extended computer program listings for the type of calculations that would otherwise be long and tedious.

It is possible for example to quickly decide on what front optic zone diameter and what front peripheral radius to order when a contact lens requires lenticulating. * A 3.5'' computer disk of the lens calculation programs running in DOS QBasic or QuickBasic is included with the book essential reading for all undergraduate optometry students, this book is also intended to extend the abilities of contact lens practitioners in coping with the problems of everyday contact lens fitting.
