From the Publisher"The second edition of this book is a much more substantial text than the first edition, providing, as the author states, 'fundamental information on anatomy, innervation, and orthoptic investigation, plus diagnosis and management of strabismus, ocular motility and related disturbances'.
[This book] is well referenced and provides not only a complete reference list following each chapter, but also substantial suggestions for further reading."
"The target audience for Clinical Orthoptics is trainee ophthalmologists and orthoptic undergraduate students. The former will undoubtedly find the book extremely useful, as will optometry students and optometrists. Undergraduate orthoptic students will also be pleased to find another text concentrating on orthoptics."

Review Comments on the first edition:
"The text layout is straight forward and ‘user friendly’ providing the reader with succinct information. The glossary and the list of abbreviations in common use by Orthoptists will be of particular use. ‘Clinical Orthoptics’ provides a concise overview of orthoptic investigations and the diagnosis and management of strabismus and ocular disorders in an accessible format."
British Orthoptic Journal
"… a well referenced and well written short textbook… provides an excellent introduction to the subject of ocular motility and its examination."
British Journal of Ophthalmology
"… uncover the strength of the book as each syndrome is presented, along with a complete description of the recommended investigation methods and a nicely arranged layout of therapy. The author’s treatment organization is intelligent; she typically initiates management with best spectacle correction and proceeds with other treatments, with surgery discussed last."
Optometry and Vision Science
"This soft-back book makes an excellent reference text on binocular anomalies for optometrists as well as the intended audience, because of its comprehensive nature."
"This book is a useful and inexpensive introduction to orthoptics...the book is straightforward, clear and well supplied with diagrams and illustrations."
