Optometric Management of Reading Dysfunction assists the optometrist with the management of patients with reading dysfunction. Exploring the historical development of the written code of language as well as how that code is stored for later retrieval and usage, this volume examines and unravels the common misperceptions associated with reading. Optometric approaches for the diagnosis and remediation of visually related reading dysfunction, as well as guidance for referral to other health care professionals and educators are provided in the book. The reader will ultimately develop a better appreciation and understanding of the complex mechanisms needed to achieve the act of reading, a clearer understanding of visually related reading dysfunction, and improved patient management skills where reading dysfunction is involved.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.
