Beschreibung

As useful and convenient as contact lenses are, a wide variety of contact lens complications, ranging from the very subtle to the most severe, has been reported in recent years.

Contact Lens Complications addresses the full range of ophthalmic complications caused by or related to the wearing of contact lenses. Beginning with an overview of the types of contact lenses available, their physiological interactions with the eye, and the problems that can result, the book then discusses patient counseling and examination. The next part, the heart of the book, is a brilliantly illustrated chapter on pathologic findings, for which a Hasselblad camera was used to obtain the photographs. The following part examines visual impairment resulting from contact lens use, the causes of contact lens damage, contact lens alterations, primary fitting and wearing problems, and eye injuries in contact lens wearers. Finally, clear and concise guidelines are provided for treatment of the complications.

Key features of this landmark text include:

  • More than 450 exquisite color illustrations and photographs, providing valuable recognition guides for instant diagnosis;
  • Quick-reference tables and graphics;
  • Terminology easily understood by those new to contact lens practice;
  • Guidelines for prophylactic measures and practical patient management;
  • Meticulous, step-by-step examining techniques and findings; and
  • Comprehensive and concise yet clear descriptions and discussions.
  • Essential for everyone involved in vision care, this authoritative and eminently practical work is certain to become indispensable in its field.
