A good working knowledge of pediatric eye disease, detection and treatment is essential to effectively screen for the more common disorders, and to refer appropriate children early on to an ophthalmologist. Primary health care workers have an important role to play in preventitive ophthalmology. This book provides the family practitioner and pediatrician with a concise, illustrated, clinical guide to eye disorders affecting children. The Child's Eye presents a practical, methodical approach to eye examination in children, and discusses relevant and common childhood eye disorders, with the emphasis on prevention, early recognition, and management. Anyone who attempts to examine the eye of a child soon realizes that the approach to examination, the tests involved and the information yielded at each step differs from adult ophthalmological evaluation. The spectrum of pediatric eye disease is dissimilar to adult disorders, and this new book will reflect these differences.

" ... it is a worthwhile text for libraries in universities, hospitals, and family medicine departments." Canadian Family Physician (vol.42, April 1996)
"... this book will be very useful to the physicians and nursing staff involved in primary paediatric care. Students in ophthalmology and optometry will also find it worthwhile reading."-- Dr. Jacques Gresset, Practical Optometry (vol.6, no. 2, April 1995)
`Information is concise, relevant, and well-illustrated. This text is well organized and the illustrations are impressive and well chosen. Each chapter provides concise yet relevant information for primary care pediatric practitioners without special training in ocular disease. There is no
doubt that this book will be very useful to the physicians and nursing staff involved in primary pediatric care. Students in ophthalmology and optometry will also find it worthwhile reading either as an introduction or as a refresher textbook.'
Jacques Gresset, Practical Optometry (vol. 6, no. 2, ~April 1995)
