Overview

This comprehensive, clinically-grounded textbook, now in its fourth edition, supports orthoptists and ophthalmologists in decision-making through the patient care process, from presentation to discharge.

Written by authors with extensive experience in teaching and research, Diagnosis and Management of Ocular Motility Disorders offers a clear and practical overview of assessment and management principles and further explores the clinical features of specific disorders, from amblyopia and infantile strabismus to supranuclear and infranuclear disorders, as well as other miscellaneous disorders of ocular movement. A brand new chapter on congenital cranial dysinnervation disorders reflects recent advances in gene mapping and increased understanding of this condition, and a new appendix provides surgical dose tables for easy reference.

Now in full colour throughout, with additional diagrams and photographs of surgical techniques, this remains the key reference text for orthoptic and ophthalmic professionals managing patients with eye movement disorders.

Gives guidance on the diagnosis and management of ocular motility disorders, emphasizing practical aspects. Section I deals in sequence with assessment of the patient. Section II covers principles and methods of non-surgical optical, orthoptic, and pharmacological treatment. Section III discusses application of conservative and surgical methods to specific non-paralytic and paralytic conditions and to nystagmus. This third edition adds a chapter on concomitant strabismus, and offers more explicit information on management and treatment. Ansons is a consultant ophthalmic surgeon at Manchester Royal Eye Hospital. Davis teaches orthoptics at Royal Hallamshire Hospital. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
From the Publisher
"The sections on ocular movements, ocular deviation and binocular function are excellent; they are concise, brief, practical and are evidence of the authors' practical and commonsense approach... The middle sections on non-surgical and surgical management follow in the same concise manner and I was very impressed with the clear description of complications and the suggestions that were made about the management... It is an excellent book and it deserves to do well as it is destined to!"
David Taylor (Eye)

"This is a comprehensive text that will appeal to all orthoptists (undergraduates and postgraduates), opthalmologists and other opthalmic professions with an interest in binocular vision. It is an essential text for orthoptists as part of their departmental and personal libraries."
Liz Tomlin (British Orthoptic Journal, Vol 59, 2002)
