Here is an easy-to-read introduction to an invaluable resource on vision care, optics, and dispensing techniques. The text opens with a brief discussion of the human eye and the eye exam followed by practical information on corrective lenses, transposition, bifocals, trifocals, progressive lenses, and aphakic lenses. Optical materials and measurements are covered with details on types of lenses, available tints, anti-reflection coatings, tints and the VDT, frame materials and parts, pupillary distance, prescription verification, lensometry, bifocal verification, and oversize blanks. The author then focuses on the art of dispensing including frame selection and fit, panto-scopic tilt, retroscopic tilt, and the use of the hot salt pan for frame adjustment. A quick guide for frame fitting troubles, a step-by-step approach to solving vision difficulties/patient complaints, and a special section on frame repair round out this well-illustrated manual.
