Major contact lens text now available

A definitive guide to contact lenses has been updated and is now available from the ABDO College bookshop.

Completely revised with the latest advances, evidence and standards needed for everyday practice, Contact Lenses, 6th Edition, is designed for optometrists, dispensing opticians, ophthalmologists and contact lens practitioners.

The classic guide provides all of the essential knowledge needed in one convenient volume and is essential reading for the College’s contact lens certificate course. It provides the latest information on contact lens materials and lens types, treatment in contact lens and tear film complications, myopia correction and contact lenses for abnormal ocular conditions.

The updated version includes new online access to ExpertConsult, with calculators and simulation programs for scleral lens fitting, sagittal values, soft toric mislocation, front vertex power, orthokeratology and rigid lens design.

The guide also discusses current topics such as miniscleral lenses, keratoconus and corneal cross-linking plus paediatric, cosmetic and prosthetic contact lenses.

An enhanced eBook version is included with purchase, which offers access to all of the text, figures and references from the guide on a variety of devices.

ABDO College bookshop administrator, Justin Hall, said: “We are excited about this launch. This is the most up-to-date text on contact lens materials and lens types. It is the definitive work in this field, completely revised and updated throughout.”
