Published first in Spanish and then in English, this colorful book serves many purposes. It is chock full of information for parents and patients of all ages. It explains the visual system and defines many terms used in optometry. The language is easy to follow, and the pictures are outstanding.
For clinicians, there are sections on amblyopia and strabismus which discuss old and new approaches and theories for treatment. Cases abound in this book. A case I wrote for the book details therapy provided for a young girl with strabismus, while others highlight patients of all ages with various conditions.
The “Frequently Asked Questions” section is an added bonus as it gives you answers that I promise you will need for patient care.
