"This is a great primer on the primary care of optometric patients. It would not be possible to go into any great depth on any one topic, but this book provides a comprehensive overview of the entire spectrum of the field of optometry. It is written in an easy to read format that will enable students and busy practitioners to quickly access information of interest. There is no other single book available that can compare to the wealth of information in this one. It is a very worthwhile contribution and a book that every optometry student and optometrist should have."

Weighted Numerical Score: 92 - 4 Stars! - Doody's Review - March 2010

"The editors and authors achieved the primary objective of producing a basic or introductory book on the science and practice of optometry. This book is highly recommended as a valuable addition to any optometrist's library."
