Totally updated and revised, and now containing a second colour throughout, this essential practical manual and CD-Rom continues to provide optometry students and practitioners with an accessible, clinical manual to all aspects of contact lens fitting and contact lens client care.
All the features that have made this text such a popular bestselling book have been retained, including the bullet point format, clinical pearls, warning notices and its individual down-to-earth practical approach.
Truly a compulsory purchase for all optometrists, dispensing opticians and contact lens practitioners. If you only every buy one contact lens book, make sure it is this one!
This book on Herpes Simplex Virus Epithelial Keratitis shows a kind of ‘living histology’, revealing both morphological and dynamic features of the disease, and explaining mechanisms behind them. It offers great insights helpful for the differential diagnostics and the recognition of less known variants as well as of complications. It is also highly useful for the follow–up of treatment results and the differentiation between an active infection and sequelae. Thus, this book will be an invaluable aid for ophthalmologists and researchers working with ocular surface diseases.
The Eye in Clinical Practice, 2nd Edition contains everything that non-specialists need to know to enable them to deal with eye problems in primary care.

The use of basic equipment is explored. Considerable update of surgery section
Revised glaucoma section includes information on the many new topical drugs available

Appendices cover formulary, list of suppliers, patient information and a glossary of terms
Researchers today in neuroscience and cognitive psychology increasingly turn their attention to binocular rivalry and other forms of perceptual ambiguity or bistability. The study of fluctuations in visual perception in the face of unchanging visual input offers a means for understanding the link between neural events and visual events, including visual awareness. Some neuroscientists believe that binocular rivalry reveals a fundamental aspect of human cognition and provides a way to isolate and study brain areas involved in attention and selection. The eighteen essays collected in Binocular Rivalry present the most recent theoretical and empirical work on this key topic by leading researchers in the field.
After the opening chapter’s overview of the major characteristics of binocular rivalry in their historical contexts, the contributors consider topics ranging from the basic phenomenon of perceptual ambiguity to brain models and neural networks. The essays illustrate the potential power of the study of perceptual ambiguity as a tool for learning about the neural concomitants of visual awareness, or, as they have been called, the “neural correlates of consciousness.”
