Summary

Contact Lens Complications has become established as the definitive guide to the ocular response to contact lens wear. In this highly anticipated third edition, award-winning contact lens author, clinician and researcher, Professor Nathan Efron, presents a thoroughly revised and expanded, clinician-friendly account of how to identify, understand and manage contact lens complications in modern-day practice. Professor Efron is renowned for his ability to distil often complex principles of ocular physiology and pathology into an easy-to-read, highly structured format. The subject matter is systematically laid out, with various complications arranged logically by tissue structure - which is the way practitioners naturally approach clinical problems. Beautifully presented and lavishly illustrated with full-colour schematic diagrams and clinical pictures, this book can serve as both a practical chair-side manual and authoritative reference.
