Ocular Motility was written for use by orthoptic and ophthalmic technicians. The goal of the book is to update and supplement current knowledge, as well as to act as a reference for the beginning practitioner.

The author has managed to include most salient details of strabismus in a brief text. There are chapters on extraocular muscle anatomy, physiology, classification of strabismus, and sensory adaptation. In addition, there are two chapters on differential diagnoses and systematic approaches to strabismus that may be helpful for the beginner. There is no section specifically addressing the approach to a young child. The author refers to the possibility of difficulty in examining children in chapter 6, but more concrete suggestions on how to work with young patients would improve the text.
