The Pediatric Ophthalmology Practice text represents a very useful addition to the ophthalmic literature. The book presents the authors' practice modalities in treating ophthalmic disorders in children. It is written in such a manner that it would not only be useful to the subspecialists in pediatric ophthalmology but would be useful as well to the general ophthalmologist and to pediatricians.
The book is broken down into 14 chapters. It starts with the most common situations in pediatric ophthalmology, such as visual acuity testing, strabismus, and amblyopia. It then progresses with subsequent chapters on congenital cataracts, nasal lacrimal system, glaucoma, and ptosis. The next chapter deals with the retina and includes examination techniques, developmental abnormalities, retrolental fibroplasia, retinal tumors, and the less common retinal abnormalities. Other chapters include the orbit, infections and inflammations, trauma, genetics, anesthesia, and dyslexia. It is written in an atlas form that is similar to the atlas
