As stated by the author in the preface, this "how to" book is an outgrowth of lectures given in Puerto Rico as part of a basic science course in ophthalmology. He describes it as a well-illustrated clinical guide for residents, practicing ophthalmologists, and general medical persons, including pediatricians, family physicians, and neurologists. He has accomplished his purpose. The anatomy, physiology, etiology, definitions, drawings, equipment and its use, diagnosis, and management, including surgery, are all spelled out clearly. Unique in this book are numerous pictures of patients which illustrate the various disorders and results of their treatment medically or surgically. Selected bibliography is given at the end of the book for each chapter.
This comprehensive book with atlas-type illustrations is a fine teaching manual with "refresher" material suitable for practicing ophthalmologists and those medical practitioners who come into contact with patients having ocular motility disorders.
