Ideal for the diagnosis and management of patients with binocular vision anomalies, this practical
and accessible manual includes all types of binocular vision problems, not just the most common
non-strabismic varieties. Clinical conditions are presented in a concise, straightforward, and clinically relevant format — with topics organized by general information, signs, symptoms, differential diagnosis, work-up, treatment, and follow-up. A separate section for diagnostic and treatment procedures contains all the diagnostic procedures that are required for the effective work-up of patients with binocular vision problems. Helpful charts and tables are also provided and contain a variety of information arranged in an easily referenced, highly portable format.

Key Features

  • The logical format is organized by symptom to help the reader quickly determine the diagnosis and management of a particular binocular vision anomaly.
  • Sections of useful charts and tables help readers quickly locate important clinical information.
  • A special section on diagnostic procedures contains procedures unique to the treatment of binocular vision problems.
