"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. All of the material is organised by the way you see it in the clinic - by slit-lamp appearance and tissue pathologies. As such, this book will be invaluable to all contact lens practitioners and students.


"Armed with Efron's Contact Lens Complications, practitioners will be well prepared to help contact lens patients with successful lens wear. Every contact lens practice needs access to this book." "Clinical and Experimental Optometry 96.3 May 2013" "It is truly a companion to the Efron Grading Scales. It is a book that will be often used, and the comprehensive cited reference section is invaluable and will satisfy any curious mind. Overall, the book is a nice addition as a clinical reference in contact lenses and their related ocular pathologies." "Optometry and Vision Science, Vol. 90, No. 3, March 2013" "In summary, this latest third edition has been completely updated and revised to reflect the most current knowledge, research findings, technological developments, and updates in the contact lens field. Its easy-to-use design and systematic approach provide instant access to information that is ideal for use in a busy clinic or for exam revision." "Optician, Dec 2012" ."we now have the whole edition available online via One simply visits the website, types in the activation code and hey presto you can access every page, image and more. The morphs are available for online viewing (or download) as is a grading tutor, which I found very useful.. The good news is that this 3rd edition contains around 60% more pages but costs around 40% less than the 2nd edition. It's a no brainer really." "New Zealand Optics, Sept 2012"
