Subjective Refraction and Prescribing Glasses

$50.00
More Info
Basic refraction is a foundational part of ophthalmology, and yet beginning ophthalmology residents and ophthalmic technicians are often left on their own to learn the finer points. Despite being core skills, the techniques and practical aspects of subjective refraction and prescribing glasses are often developed by trial and error, if they are developed at all.

Subjective Refraction and Prescribing Glasses: The Number One (or Number Two) Guide to Practical Techniques and Principles, Third Edition is designed as a complete guide to those essential skills, offering everything from basic terminology to tips, tricks, and best practices. This updated Third Edition has been expanded in every section with thoughtful, practical advice, and has case scenarios, in a question and answer format, of situations encountered with real-world patients. It is the most comprehensive review of clinical subjective refraction to date.

Drs. Richard Kolker and Andrew Kolker together have nearly 50 years of experience in the practice of ophthalmology and bring both the fresh eyes of a beginning ophthalmologist and the experience of a seasoned veteran to this Third Edition. While new residents and technicians will appreciate the thorough explanation of refractive fundamentals, even expert ophthalmologists will appreciate the practical tips that may have never occurred to them.

Included are:
  • Very clear, easy-to-read, practical explanations of the subjective refraction process
  • Basic practical optics to explain the steps of subjective refraction
  • The Jackson Cross Cylinder made easy to understand and use
  • Plus and mInus cylinder methods discussed separately and color coded for quick identification
  • An Appendix with a primer on retinoscopy and how to use the manual lensometer
  • The art of subjective refraction and prescribing glasses

  • Subjective Refraction and Prescribing Glasses: The Number One (or Number Two) Guide to Practical Techniques and Principles, Third Edition is the definitive guide to the often neglected skills involved in clinical subjective refraction. Residents and technicians will find it a critical guide in their learning process, but even seasoned ophthalmologists can benefit from the tips and tricks enclosed within.

    Today's healthcare supervisors are continually faced with smaller budgets, fewer workers, and greater responsibilities. The seventh edition of Umiker's Management Skills for the New Health Care Supervisor continues to provide valuable information for future healthcare managers and supervisors who must address these challenges daily.

    Written primarily for those who have little to no management training, Umiker's offers practical suggestions for improving effectiveness, both as a supervisor and as an organization. Ideal for students in undergraduate, community, and career college programs, author Charles R. McConnell maintains Dr. William Umiker's clear, jargon-free writing style.

    The Seventh Edition includes a new chapter on "Supervising in a Union Environment" that explores why employees turn to unions, how supervisors must act during union organizing, and how a supervisor's role is affected when it becomes necessary to interact with a union on a day-to-day basis.

    This revision also offers new examples, case scenarios, or expanded information on many topics including: basic management functions, the origins of performance standards, the interview process, workplace safety, motivational theory, chronic absenteeism, stress and decision making, the Balanced Budget Act of 1997, and the Affordable Care Act of 2010.

    UNDERSTANDING PSYCHOLOGY (LOOSE PGS)

    $181.00
    More Info

    Students First. Designed for student success, Feldman provides students with a powerful learning framework to help them connect, engage, and feel excited about psychology.

    Using a revolutionary revision process, Understanding Psychology is a fully integrated learning system that brings the "Students First" goal to a new level. With the adaptive learning program, SmartBook(TM), every student has a unique experience personalized to their needs.

    The new edition has continued to use the "HeatMap" technology to advise the revision. Systematic and precise feedback from thousands of students was anonymously collected using LearnSmart(TM). Because virtually every paragraph in the previous edition is tied to several questions students answer in LearnSmart, the author was able to see where students struggled most...the "hot spots"...and in turn refine and update these areas to be more clear, more concise, and more impactful.

    The 13th edition continues with Feldman's accessible pedagogy and hallmark research, as well as his modules-within-chapters format that is both manageable for students and allows every professor the flexibility to assign and cover what they want.
