A Funny Book, Review

  1. 1. Visual Performance Today 69 Volume 1 | Issue 2 Ha, ha, ha! Hee, Hee!! Guffaw, guffaw!!! Ha, Hee, Guffaw! I could finish my book review right here, but what would be the fun of that? Many of you have heard of Dr. Newman because he is a prolific writer. He’s a former editor for the California Optometric Association journal and a former contributing editor for Optometry, Journal of the American Optometric Association. All of us have had patients say the most unusual, interesting, and funny things. Most of us say (at least to ourselves), I should write these down and publish a book. We then start our next patient and soon forget all about this, at least until the next patient says something of interest during an examination. Well, Dr. Newman did not forget. He wrote down what he heard, and the end result is this book. Here are a few examples of “things patients say:” Patient (Pt): How much are contract lenses? Dr. N: You mean contact lenses? Patient: No, contract glasses, for reading the small print in a contract. Dr. N: Tell me about your glasses. What’s your biggest problem? Pt: Finding them! Dr. N: What are you taking medications for? Elderly Pt: Everything I’m having problems with! And Dr. N: Now does that look blurry? Pt: I can’t tell. I can’t read any of the letters. As you can see, Dr. Newman obviously examines the same patients we do. This book should be read by any optometrists and staff members who need a laugh after a hard day in the office. Buy it. Read it. Laugh. Laugh many times. Book Review: A Romp Through an Eye Examination Author: Byron Newman, OD Reviewed by Dominick M. Maino, OD, MEd Illinois College of Optometry • Chicago, Illinois
