There are other books on the subject, but this one covers quite well the whole field of strabismus. Although intended for the ophthalmologist, much of the material will be understood by the pediatrician. A review of the anatomy and physiology of the extraocular muscles is followed by a treatment of the theories of binocular vision and of the etiology and pathogenesis of strabismus.

Practical clinical details as to measurements, treatment and surgical measures are given and well illustrated. In this complex field of much controversy and conflict of theories, the writer and publishers have put together a concise, practical and well printed book. It compares favorably with other writings in the field.
