Ophthalmic Lenses & Dispensing

This title is directed primarily towards health care professionals outside of the United States. Lavishly illustrated, this highly successful book has been revised and updated but continues to provide the principles and practice of ophthalmic lens dispensing for all optometrists and dispensing opticians. Written by one of the world’s best-known and most highly acclaimed authors, Professor Mo Jalie, this essential text book is a distillation of his years of experience, wisdom and clinical training.
