Overview

This basic text covers the evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment of the most prevalent vision disorders in a clinical optometrist's or ophthalmologist's practice. Coverage includes the most common non-strabismic binocular vision disorders, including accommodative and eye movement disorders as well as amblyopia. Coverage of each diagnostic category includes background information, symptoms, case analysis, and management options. Case studies appear at the end of each chapter.

This edition includes three new chapters on primary care of binocular vision, accommodative and eye movement disorders; myopia control; and binocular vision problems associated with refractive surgery. The thoroughly revised chapters on vision therapy procedures and instrumentation describe the latest equipment and computer software. The chapters on advanced diagnostic and management issues have been updated with the latest research.

This book contains black-and-white illustrations.
