Key Features

  • Complete coverage of key optometric skills, including:
    • how to take a comprehensive ocular and health history
    • how to thoroughly investigate ocular health status
    • how to perform a thorough refractive and binocular vision examination
    • how to prescribe corrective lenses and/or vision therapy
    • how to co-manage refractive surgery and ocular disease.
  • Comprehensive discussions of the theory behind each optometric procedure.
  • An emphasis on current non-surgical methods of myopia control and reduction, as well as methods of caring for patients with impaired vision.
  • A logical organization, divided into three main parts: anomalies of refraction and binocular vision, optometric examination, and diagnosis and management.
  • In-depth coverage of topics that include: objective refraction, subjective refraction, binocular vision examination, corneal topography measurement, ophthalmic lenses, geriatric optometry, vision impairment, control of myopia, and management of ocular diseases in a primary care optometric practice.
