Understanding Strabismus 1st

The management of a patient with strabismus is one of the most challenging tasks for trainee ophthalmic surgeons and general ophthalmologists.

This book is clinically oriented; it describes the clinical management of all varieties of strabismus in a step-wise and simplified manner which is very easy to follow.

Strabismus surgery is the second most common major ophthalmic surgical procedure after cataract surgery. The basic surgical principles, indications and techniques are fully explained and illustrated with diagrams and figures.

In the last chapter of the book, common clinical cases are discussed regarding their presentation and management. This chapter is actually the whole essence of the book which helps the reader develop a comprehensive knowledge and grasp of the subject.

Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus (Basic & Clinical Science Course (BCSC))

Begins with discussions of the pediatric eye examination and extraocular muscle anatomy. Includes chapters on amblyopia, sensory physiology and pathology, and the diagnostic evaluation of strabismus. Examines the clinical features, diagnosis and treatment of esodeviations and exodeviations, pattern strabismus, vertical deviations, nystagmus, and special forms of strabismus.

Oxford Handbook of Eye Movements


In the past few years, there has been an explosion of eye movement research in cognitive science and neuroscience. This has been due to the availability of ‘off the shelf’ eye trackers, along with software to allow the easy acquisition and analysis of eye movement data. Accompanying this has been a realisation that eye movement data can be informative about many different aspects of perceptual and cognitive processing. Eye movements have been used to examine the visual and cognitive processes underpinning a much broader range of human activities, including, language production, dialogue, human computer interaction, driving behaviour, sporting performance, and emotional states. Finally, in the past thirty years, there have been real advances in our understanding of the neural processes that underpin eye movement behaviour.
The Oxford Handbook of Eye Movements provides the first comprehensive review of the entire field of eye movement research. In over fifty chapters, it reviews the developments that have so far taken place, the areas actively being researched, and looks at how the field is likely to devlop in the coming years. The first section considers historical and background material, before moving onto section 2 on the neural basis of eye movements. The third and fourth sections looks at visual cognition and eye movements and eye movement pathology and development. The final sections consider eye movements and reading and language processing and eye movements.
Bringing together cutting edge research from and international team of leading psychologists, neuroscientists, and vision researchers, this book is the definitive reference work in this field

Color Atlas of Strabismus Surgery: Strategies and Techniques

2.7% of children in the US are born with or develop strabismus (crossed eyes) in the early years of life. (The incidence rates are similar in much of the developed world.) While the condition only rarely leads to blindness, it can have long-term impacts on ocular health. Left untreated, one eye will eventually become dominant over the other, heightening the concern over injury or illness in the “good” eye. Strabismus can be treated therapeutically with eye patches, but the success rate isn’t optimal. More often, surgical correction is the path chosen not only for cosmetic/social reasons but also because it is more medically effective.
