Abstract

This book on strabismus comes to fill a vacuum in the Spanish ophthalmologic literature, presenting in one volume a summary of the great quantity of papers, publications, and conferences on the subject in many languages. The well-organized context and the simple, clear presentation of the present fundamental concepts regarding the physiology of vision and the motor system, the etiology of strabismus, and its classification, diagnosis, and treatment should prove of great value to the student and practitioner of ophthalmology.

The first three chapters cover the anatomy, physiology, and pathology of the oculomotor apparatus. Functional pathology is broken down into alterations of the static eye—position of eyes modified by anatomical structure of the glove, muscles, or orbit—and dynamic alterations—deficiency of action or overaction of one or more muscles. Chapters IV and V present the development of monocular and binocular vision and the sensory disturbances that occur in strabismus.
