Written as part of the Basic Bookshelf for Eyecare Professionalsseries, this brief manual would benefit ophthalmology residents, fellows in pediatric ophthalmology and adult strabismus, general ophthalmologists, and optometrists as well as the more obvious audience of orthoptic and ophthalmic technician and technology students. In fact, it would be ideal to have residents read it through prior to their clinical rotation in "peds," before they develop any fears or negative attitudes from the frustrating clinical experience of trying to elicit information from a squiggly, shy, sometimes frightened, or totally uncooperative child. Too often residents and general ophthalmologists avoid or are scared away from the basic eye examination of children and the evaluation of strabismus in children and adults.
