This book simplifies the complex subject of strabismus for postgraduate students of ophthalmology. It clarifies the basic concepts and includes clinical tips, illustrations, flow charts as well as multiple-choice questions to aid understanding. It also provides essential information that students require for examinations.
Further, it encourages ophthalmologists who do not usually deal with strabismus patients to identify and manage uncomplicated cases. It discusses various management options, including the guidelines for refraction and spectacle prescription, which are often neglected. Separate chapters on surgical planning, horizontal muscle surgery and complications make strabismus surgery a reality for all eye surgeons. Lastly, the book addresses practical issues like parent counseling and alternatives to surgery.
