    MCQs form an integral part of undergraduate teaching programmes and in assessment for professional qualification. This book presents over 200 multiple choice questions ranging from basic aspects of visual optics, ocular structure and function and appropriate drug actions, to the application and interpretation of clinical techniques in optometry. The corresponding answers are a statement of the preferred choice and include explanatory notes, where appropriate. In every case there is a recommended reading list which draws on relevant books and journals that are widely available. An essential revision aid, MCQs in Optometry will prove invaluable to candidates studying for British and other European examinations in optometry as well as to students and practitioners of optometry world-wide. Ophthalmologists preparing for their examinations will find many helpful elements in these questions, answers and references.
