Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

The comprehensive approach of this authoritative book focuses on vision therapy and addresses surgical and pharmacological treatment of binocular vision problems. Discussion of normal binocular vision lays the foundation for examining poor visual skills, strabismus, ambylopia, various associated conditions, and oculomotor disorders. Each chapter contains a detailed outline, which acts as an excellent review and provides access to basic information and key topics. Numerous summary tables and figures promote focused learning and provide quick access to information. The enhanced "how to" approach provides specific vision training techniques. Explores the management of medical and neurological binocular problems, making this book applicable for primary eye care practitioners as well as specialists in vision therapy. Extensive appendices provide practical, supplemental information. 100 questions with answers and detailed chapter outlines act as excellent review guides. A CD-ROM included with the book contains popular training techniques and forms that can be modified to accommodate specific needs for office use and additional training.
