Editorial Reviews

From the reviews of the third edition:"This textbook is an atlas that covers the management of a wide range of strabismus disorders using surgical techniques of varying complexity. It is an updated third edition . and intended for 'surgeons of diverse experience, from the resident ophthalmologist to the most experienced stabismologist.' .Overall, I greatly enjoyed this excellently composed compendium of strabismus surgery." (Megumi Iizuka, American Orthoptic Journal, Vol. 57, 2007)"The book has been written to serve as a practical text to teach strabismus surgical technique, with the incorporation of both line drawings and photographs of actual surgery. . The book is intended to benefit both the resident ophthalmologist to develop his/her understanding of strabismus surgery and the experienced strabismologist, to learn nuances of strabismus surgery. All in all an excellent book to learn about strabismus surgery, next only to first hand experience." (Maneesh Kumar, Optometry Today, September, 2009)
