I was looking for a book that explains the technical differences in various types of lenses. Multifocal, bifocal, aspherical, high index, polycarb, plastic, glass, abbe numbers etc. How does one choose and what are the advantages and disadvantages of each type and manufacturers design. I was also interested in the differences in contacts. Torics, bifocals, etc etc. The book is technically lame. It was no help whatsoever. Ask your optometrist was the redcomendation. I learned nothing from this book! Nothing!

A disappointing book. Talks down to consumers -- that old fashioned doctor/dumb patient relationship. There is little in this book in the way of really helpful content for those who want to know about what type of lenses to select, what the difference are in lens coatings, etc. The orientation is more of the "ask your eyedoc" orientation. There is LOTS of general stuff, but not enough to be really helpful in making decisions. If you are looking for a basic reference book about eye problems and how your eyes work, this book is actually quite good. But, do not buy this book if you want real help on where and what to buy in the way of eyeglasses or contact lenses.

I am very puzzled by the previous review. I bought the book exactly for the same reasons and it explained everything carefully. More important, it described options that I did not realize existed. I originally had the 3rd edtion and was so impressed with it, that I bought the 4th. However, the difference between the two is very little, so buy the cheaper for the two. I have not seen the the 1st and the 2nd edition so I cannot comment on them.
