Industry Reviews

"Clinical procedures In Primary Eye Care is perhaps 'the' interactive textbook for students of optometry to supplement their didactic and clinical education." Clinical and Experimental Optometry, 99.2, March 2016

"The chapters are well organized, the tables and figures are very useful, and the references are complete. Some chapters, especially Chapter 4, uses excellent colored images of various ocular conditions. This book certainly attains its goals as set out in the Preface and would be recommended to optometry students, residents, or practitioners wishing to review their clinical practice." Optometry and Vision Science, Vol. 91, No. 1, January 2014
