Even with the advances in intraocular lens technology and the growing diversity of refractive surgery techniques, the role of contact lenses in ophthalmic practice has only increased. This is due in part to the great strides in materials, technology, expanding applications both refractive and therapeutic for contact lenses, and the clear recognition that contact lenses will always be an important tool for the ophthalmologist. With the fitting of contact lenses as a medical art, requiring a thorough understanding of anatomy, physiology and optics of the eye, this practice is formulaic only in part.
This title is directed primarily towards health care professionals outside of the United States. This edition has been thoroughly updated and contains integral coverage of soft lenses, information on the latest corneal measuring techniques, and expanded coverage of astigmatism and corneal toricity.
It includes a new chapter on presbyopia and separate treatment of orthokeratology. Also included on the CD-ROM, is a set of invaluable computer programs, which allow the users to bypass tedious calculations in arriving at best fits.

Four different types of soft contact lenses were randomly fitted to both eyes of each subject on two separate visits. UL-OCT imaged each lens in vitro and the ocular surface of a physical model eye. Mismatches between the lens and the ocular surface were simulated based on UL-OCT images of the in vitro lenses and the model eye. The existence of tear film gaps and touching points were predicted in the simulation.

To evaluate the impact of soft contact lens eye-fit on optical power by computational modelling and to produce correction maps for reversing this impact during the design process. Lens optical zone power changes were calculated through computational light-ray tracing methods following each simulation. Spherical lenses demonstrated similar behaviour, however with some positive EPC over the power range from D to D for spherical power SPH lenses.
Contact lens , or simply contacts , are thin lenses placed directly on the surface of the eyes. Contact lenses are ocular prosthetic devices used by over million people worldwide,  and they can be worn to correct vision or for cosmetic or therapeutic reasons. People choose to wear contact lenses for many reasons. When compared with spectacles, contact lenses typically provide better peripheral vision , and do not collect moisture from rain, snow, condensation, etc. This can make them preferable for sports and other outdoor activities.
Purpose : To evaluate the visual performance and optical quality of a standardized asymmetric soft contact lens SCL used for correction of higher-order aberrations HOAs in eyes with keratoconus. Methods : We included 30 eyes 26 patients with keratoconus average K: The patients were subjected to corneal tomography, aberrometry, measurements of manifest refraction and visual acuity VA , and visual analog scale VAS assessments. The study lenses were made using a molding method and consisted of six standardized types, in which an asymmetric power distribution of approximately 2 to 12 D 2-D step was used to correct HOAs. The lens type suitable for each eye was selected based on the corneal tomography and aberrometry data. The on-eye performance of the lens was evaluated using aberrometry 4-mm pupil , over refraction, VA, and VAS. Conclusions : A standardized asymmetric SCL can reduce HOAs and improve vision quality when compared with spectacles in patients with keratoconus who wear rigid gas-permeable lenses.
ГЛАВА 73 У Дэвида Беккера было такое ощущение, будто его лицо обдали скипидаром и подожгли. Он катался по полу и сквозь мутную пелену в глазах видел девушку, бегущую к вращающейся двери. Она бежала короткими испуганными прыжками, волоча по кафельному полу туристскую сумку. Беккер хотел подняться на ноги, но у него не было на это сил. Ослепленные глаза горели огнем. Он хотел крикнуть, но в легких не было воздуха, с губ срывалось лишь невнятное мычание.
Толпа стала еще плотнее, а улица шире. Они двигались уже не по узкому боковому притоку, а по главному руслу. Когда улица сделала поворот, Беккер вдруг увидел прямо перед собой собор и вздымающуюся ввысь Гиральду. Звон колоколов оглушал, эхо многократно отражалось от высоких стен, окружающих площадь. Людские потоки из разных улиц сливались в одну черную реку, устремленную к распахнутым дверям Севильского собора.
