All too often the technical jargon and mystery surrounding various manufacturing processes can seem daunting at best and confusing at worst. However, this practical and down-to-earth book aims to demystify manufacturing optics, taking the subject out of its academic ivory tower and putting it firmly where it belongs in the real world of the industry, workshop and the clinic. Prepared by an optical technician with extensive teaching and practical experience, Kelvin Wakefield has written text in a clear and approachable style, avoiding formulae or technical jargon. This classic text will continue to be a valuable introduction for everyone entering the field of retail and manufacturing optics, including dispensing opticians, optical assistants, technicians, and receptionists.
