This comprehensive, clinically-grounded textbook, now in its fourth edition, supports orthoptists and ophthalmologists in decision-making through the patient care process, from presentation to discharge.

Written by authors with extensive experience in teaching and research, Diagnosis and Management of Ocular Motility Disorders offers a clear and practical overview of assessment and management principles and further explores the clinical features of specific disorders, from amblyopia and infantile strabismus to supranuclear and infranuclear disorders, as well as other miscellaneous disorders of ocular movement. A brand new chapter on congenital cranial dysinnervation disorders reflects recent advances in gene mapping and increased understanding of this condition, and a new appendix provides surgical dose tables for easy reference.

Now in full colour throughout, with additional diagrams and photographs of surgical techniques, this remains the key reference text for orthoptic and ophthalmic professionals managing patients with eye movement disorders.
