This book is essentially a new edition of the popular Rehabilitation of a Child's Eyes by Scobee that was revised by Katzin in 1955. It should have wide approval as a way of answering the questions of parents about their child's strabismus and its treatment. Perhaps its main criticism is that it continues the enthusiastic endorsement of the value of orthoptics in the successful management of strabismus. Those ophthalmologists who do not have the services of a certified orthoptist available and who do not believe in the benefit of orthoptic training will certainly object to the book for this reason. However, it is the best available text for explaining strabismus to parents and will continue to merit its popularity.
