The timing of this new edition is significant. Over the past 8 years since the second edition, many clinical and research advancements in the field have surfaced. This is reflected in the expansion of the strabismus section to 18 chapters, advancements in the understanding of dyslexia and metabolic diseases, changes in treatment criteria for retinopathy of prematurity, discussion of parameters in refractive surgery in children, and validity of vision screening. By including the clinical and research expertise of 109 authors from around the world, the editors achieve a comprehensive, yet specialized, textbook that benefits pediatric and comprehensive ophthalmologists alike. A strength of the publication is that it compiles the writings of such a vast group of leaders in the field of pediatric ophthalmology and strabismus.
