revision of this classic major reference will continue to outline the latest
findings in diagnosing children's eye diseases and their treatment options. The
information in this edition will be presented in the same user-friendly format,
heavily illustrated in color plates, tables, charts, and decision-making
guidelines. This approach will enable the practitioner to make the most accurate
diagnosis and choose the most effective treatment option. The highlights of this
edition will include the new coverage of surgical treatment options and
illustrated surgical techniques. Also, it will cover the most comprehensive list
