I particu- larly enjoyed the chapters covering visual development, psychology of vision and visual performance, as they gave good reviews of current science in these areas and were easy to read.

A question must be raised in regard to a book that includes science, techniques and clinical management in pages: is there is enough detail in each chapter to make reading worthwhile when there are whole textbooks devoted to what might be covered in one chapter?

The authors acknowledge that the book cannot cover all aspects of the science, application and art of optometry, and set a more achievable goal of providing the reader with an introduction to each area to whet the readers' appetite and motivate them to explore more advanced sources of information.

The section of the book covering optometric science has 11 chapters. I particularly enjoyed the chapters covering visual development, psychology of vision and visual performance, as they gave good reviews of current science in these areas and were easy to read. The chapter on ocular disease is a mere 30 pages and while well written could not possibly do justice to the scope and depth of eye disease that an optometrist needs to understand.

This chapter would be a good introduction to eye disease for first or second year students of optometry but not useful for the practising clinician. The second section of the book covering techniques seemed particularly strong in the areas of objective and subjective refraction. The information in this section was up to date, including newer optometric techniques, such as optical coherence tomography and central corneal thickness measurement.

It was pleasing to see a chapter on prescribing spectacles as this important area is sometimes overlooked. The final section of the book covers management. The first two chapters cover objectives of the eye examination and communication skills. These chapters seemed particularly pertinent for a student optometrist as their thinking of the optometric examination moves from a collection of tests to the real issue of defining and resolving vision problems.

The chapters covering management of paediatric and low vision patients and patients with developmental disabilities provide useful tips even for experienced clinicians. I expect that this book will make its way into many recommended textbook lists at optometry schools and will be useful for optometrists looking to review their knowledge or expand their scope of practice.Although one could argue that ness, convenience, succinctness are pos- great start even when further searching optometry around the world is gradually sible points of difference.
