Who should be interested in this book?

The book is not a technical book and, as the title suggests, relates the story of how contact lenses developed and, more importantly, the personalities of the great pioneers who invented them. Not for them the luxury of text books or Mr Google to show them how to do it. Based on extensive research and over 200 interviews this book could be read as a novel.Obviously it would be a great asset to all eyecare professionals, optical and contact lens students, optical colleges, contact lens researchers, contact lens designers and manufacturers, contact lens sales and marketing teams, those interested in social history, the history of medicine and healthcare appliances, contact lenses wearers and members of the public. In short just about everybody!
