This extensive book provides an up-to-date overview by leading international authorities, spanning the disciplines of neuroscience, psychology, ophthalmology, optometry, and paediatrics, of normal and pathological infant visual development. It covers the development of retinal receptors;infant sensitivity to detail, colour, contrast, and movement; binocularity, eye movements, and refraction, and cognitive processing. Childrens' visual deficits, including amblyopia and cataract are covered.
