The Basic Bookshelf for Eyecare Professionals is a series that provides fundamental and advanced material with a clinical approach to clinicians and students. A special effort was made to include information needed for the certification exams in ophthalmic and optometric assisting, low vision, surgical assisting, opticianry, and contact lens examiners.

The Slit Lamp Primer provides an introduction to the slit lamp microscope and examination. It details the slit lamp, its uses, and maintenance. Key points are highlighted at the beginning of each chapter to give the reader an overview of the material. More than 120 figures are presented, to show you the procedure step-by-step as well as to highlight what you will actually see through the microscope. Detailed notes for proper documentation of findings are included, along with tables to give guidelines for subjective grading of your findings.

This book will prove to be a valuable part of your ocular library. It is ideal for optometric and ophthalmic paraprofessionals, especially those who are studying for certification examinations. Notonly is The Slit Lamp Primer the perfect text for anyone who needs an introduction to slit lamp biomicroscopy, but also for those who are ready to dig a little deeper and make the most of this invaluable instrument.
