Written by Janice K. Ledford, an eyecare professional with over 26 years of experience, The Little Eye Book: A Pupil's Guide to Understanding Ophthalmology, Second Edition is perfect for anyone who works in the eye care industry or with patients, but isn't an ophthalmologist.
"Anyone interested in learning more about the eye, refractive conditions, or the equipment used to diagnose and manage refractive conditions will benefit from this short book. This book is remarkably comprehensive for being so small and compact. Various diagrams and tables help readers to visualize and quickly understand the concepts. This book is a joy to read. The author makes learning about the eye fun with humor and a relaxed approach to learning. The book is easy to carry and would be great for office personnel or for those in related fields needing a working knowledge of the eye and eye care."
