Pediatric Ophthalmology: current thought and practice’ is written by renowned experts with many years of experience and perspective on the state-of-the-art recommendations.
All chapters are consistent in format and style and have practical application to the daily practice of medical and surgical pediatric ophthalmology.

Many techniques that have been learned over many years by experienced practitioners will be illustrated and explained to the reader. Added value is given with useful tables and charts that will likely get constant use in offices and operating rooms, for example: Important drug dosages and side-effects, nystagmus surgical charts, strabismus surgical tables, spectacle artifacts, and an intraocular lens nomogram. This practical guide will promote understanding and update and guide the novice and the expert to improve the flow of the examination and treatment outcome. It is one of the most informative and useful books ever written for the pediatric ophthalmologist and the general ophthalmologist who cares for children.
