"Overall, Contact Lens Practice is an essential resource for all optometry students, contact lens educators, and practitioners seeking an up to date reference that combines the latest science with practical clinical pearls." -- Clinical and Experimental Optometry, September 2017?
"Well written chapters cover, among other things, history, anatomy, physiology, optics, soft and hard lenses, manufacture, care systems as well as sclerals, compliance, modalities and speciality lenses. Nathan has solicited contributions from a wide range of world leaders who have excelled in sharing their love, passion and expertise in the fantastic area of contact lenses. Nicely done, one and all. Add it to your library." -- MiVision, August 2017
