The third edition of Dr Eugene Helveston's book on strabismus surgery provides a concise and simple review of the subject, obviously representing the author's own dictum that the strabismus surgeon should keep learning from experience and remain appropriately skeptical. The first part of the book includes a section on the history of strabismus surgery, a short anatomical review, and notes on instrumentation and anesthesia. Various types of muscle operations are summarized with the aid of line drawings. Complications of surgery are mentioned, and a brief section deals with the use of botulinum A toxin injection. Then there is a summary of the amounts of recession and resection of muscles, which Dr Helveston has found to be appropriate for his cases. The final section contains some clinical examples.
"The strabismus surgeon should keep learning from experience and remain appropriately skeptical."
