Written by highly experienced clinicians, this volume is the first text to integrate basic concepts of vision development with clinical diagnosis and treatment of pediatric vision disorders. Coverage begins with a thorough review of the normal course of vision development, focusing on the years from birth through preschool. The next section presents a comprehensive, step-by-step clinical methodology for evaluating visual function. Subsequent chapters discuss treatment strategies, including parameters for prescribing lenses for children, notes on when not prescribing is appropriate, options in strabismus and amblyopia, and visual therapy for very young children. More than 200 illustrations complement the text.
