Strabismus is not an easy topic for practitioners of any level. Sure, it is easy to diagnose a constant large angle tropia with a cover test, but there is so much more to it.
Determining the presence of anomalous correspondence and/or eccentric fixation takes a high level of skill and understanding. If you don’t regularly perform the tests, they can easily be forgotten.
This textbook does a great job of breaking down strabismus and the testing that is needed for a complete diagnosis. A comprehensive treatment approach—including lenses, vision therapy, and surgery as well as detailed plans for therapy based on condition—is presented. There is a heavy emphasis on surgical correction, in my opinion, where a greater emphasis needs to be placed on therapy and lens treatments.
If you are looking for a great textbook to help manage your difficult strabismus, this is definitely a must-have.
