For over 25 years,The Retinoscopy Book: An Introductory Manual for Eye Care Professionalshas been the only basic instruction manual designed specifically to teach the art of clinical retinoscopy. This best-selling classic has been updated and revised to include the latest changes involving the retinoscope, and to meet the developing needs of students in ophthalmology and optometry. Sections on minus cylinders, concave mirror retinoscopy for high refractive errors, and a catalog of instruments have been expanded to reflect the most recent innovations. New sections on retinoscopy after refractive surgery and instrument maintenance are unique to this fifth edition.

This text is designed to supplement the Joint Commission on Allied Health Personnel in Ophthalmology (JCAHPO) instruction courses for technicians or to facilitate a do-it-yourself training program for ophthalmology residents, ophthalmic technicians, optometry students, and other eye care professionals in training. Figures and illustrations supplement time-tested exercises to facilitate learning. The user-friendly format prevalent throughout the text enables students to develop a complete understanding of the retinoscope and its many uses.
