This text provides a comprehensive introduction and discussion of the optics of the eye with its refractive correction and instruments used in eye examination, measurement of visual acuity, contrast sensitivity, refractive errors and accommodation, together with an introduction to binocular vision. The book includes sections on the side effects of spectacle and contact lens corrections and on the aberrations of the eye. The four chapters on the oculomotor system and stereopsis are intended to provide a foundation for further study. It has been written mainly for the student of optometry, but much of the subject matter should be of interest to the student dispensing optician, while parts will be helpful to the student of physiological optics. The depth of coverage should, however, also make it useful to the qualified practitioner or a prospective researcher in these fields. The clinical chapters contribute both to a fundamental understanding of the procedures, together with practical advice gained from many years of work as a practising optometrist. The results of recent research are included, in order to given an insight into possible advances in techniques or explanations of clinical findings.
