The author of this book is the senior staff orthoptist and lecturer in orthoptics at the London Refraction Hospital. He is the author of a previous book, "Clinical Orthoptics," which is now out of print. The book is well written and well illustrated. It covers the anatomy and physiology of the ocular muscles. There are good chapters on heterophoria and on all of the clinical aspects of strabismus, both comitant and incomitant.

The author seems to be fully aware that orthoptic treatment has its limitations, and the chapters on treatment will serve as an excellent manual for all orthoptists.
