William J Benjamin St Louis: I am compelled to agree with the editor that, like many books, this second edition is better than the first.
Beginning with the basics, this book is smaller and has coloured pictures. More seriously, the extensive array of diagrams better illustrates clinical procedures, underlying principles and clinical findings and generally makes the text more inviting. Despite the reduced thickness, the new edition covers previously addressed topics pertaining to refractive error more comprehensively and in light of recent advances in research and clinical optometry.
Despite the title, more than refraction is addressed. The book is organised into five sections: Research and clinical optometrists will recognise many of the 45 authors who provide the breadth of knowledge across the 37 chapters.
Factors associated with refractive error, relationships between ocular components, refractive changes in children and adulthood, progression of ametropias and control strategies are well reviewed. These last two discussions provide a sizeable source of information to benefit patient management and serve as a good foundation for patient advice regarding progression of ametropia.
However, like most books, recent research findings are occasionally absent. Methods of objective and subjective refraction at distance and near, including corneal topography, are particularly well discussed.
The inclusion of wavefront refraction is in keeping with advances in aberrometry that are aimed at improving vision beyond the dioptre when correcting ametropia and which perhaps will be incorporated in more routine clinical examinations in the not too distant future.
Various forms of refractive correction are reviewed, including the optical and clinical considerations of single vision lenses, multifocal lenses, contact lenses including silicon hydrogels, options for presbyopes and RGPs and surgical strategies. Although corrective techniques and approaches are constantly changing, I found the review of surgical procedures informative. General procedures, side effects, complications, contraindications and clinical features of marginal and good candidates are covered; topics that are important when a patient presents with an interest in refractive surgery or we think we have identified a suitable candidate.
Ocular examination techniques of the anterior and posterior segments are detailed and compare well with books that focus solely on general optometric procedures.
