    已刊登評論 "The impressive quantity and quality of information supplied and written in a format that is readily understood, makes this text an invaluable resource for the understanding and prescribing of contact lenses."

    Michael Doyle, Optometrist, Bassendean Optical, Philadelphia, USA

    "Contact Lenses is a marvellous book and a pleasure to read.Anyone with the fourth edition of Contact Lenses should seriously consider buying this fifth edition.Think of the changes in contact lens practice in the past 10 years - both daily disposable and silicone hydrogel disposable lenses arrived and are now mainstream; and there have been enormous advances in contact lens designs including multifocal, coloured lenses, keratoconic, scleral and reverse geometry GP lens designs, corneal topography and multipurpose solutions. Furthermore - and this is a major advantage - the fifth edition of Contact Lenses is much more readable and easy to access.

    This is a book that all practitioners who fit contact lenses should buy. It is not just a book; it is a celebration of contact lenses.”

    Adrian Bruce, Department of Optometry and Vision Sciences, The University of Melbourne and Victorian College of Optometry

    "The format, colour and graphics are light years ahead of previous editions, and there has been some necessary trimming of chapters in the fast-moving world of contact lenses.

    What I love about this book is the graphics. The chapter on "Anatomy and physiology of the cornea and related structures” (Ruskell and Bergmanson) is equally illuminating and valuable to the experienced practitioner and undergraduate student, largely because of the diagrams and micrographs reinforcing clearly laid out coloured bullet points. All chapters are colour-coded and full of well designed tables for easy reference.This book will be of clinical and academic value to both practitioner and student, and is accompanied with a very good CD-Rom containing extra information on contact lens design and clinical grading scales.”

    Grant Watters MScOptom; DipCLP; FCLS is an optometrist who practises in St Heliers Bay, Auckland.

    "For the practitioner who wishes to maintain a current reference on the topic, the fifth edition of Contact Lenses is a worthwhile investment. For the instructor seeking a comprehensive text for student use, this edition offers a current, colorful, and lively option well worth consideration."
