Since the 1960s, there has been great expansion of our understanding of the development of vision in early life. New techniques and technologies have provided unprecedented insights into the function of all the components of the visual system--optical, motor and neural--during this formative period. These insights have come from neurophysiological studies of animal models, electrophysiological and psychophysical studies of infants and young children, and clinical and other studies of such abnormal developmental conditions as amblyopia ("lazy eye"), nystagmus and prematurity. Despite this broadened scope of study of early visual development, there has never been a comprehensive single text or reference work definitively reviewing the entire field. This important work provides such an overview. Prepared under the auspices of the Committee on Vision of the National Academy of Sciences/National Research Council, its in-depth chapters are written by world authorities. Equally useful to the student or clinician looking for a convenient introduction to the field and to the researcher in seeking explicit detail, this book provides a new degree of integration of this diverse field.

Kurt Simons is at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.Review:
"Written by a variety of accomplished scientists and physicians, describes in scientific and clinical detail the course of early visual development. These graphs and illustrations are well done and correlate well with the text. . . . extremely comprehensive. . . . certainly a valuable
reference text." --Lise Anne Guay-Bhatia, MD, Doody's Journal
"The most comprehensive, up-to-date textbook possible on the subject. The list of contributors to this text is a virtual Who's Who of scientists and clinicians who specialize in infant vision. Their task was to develop a comprehensive state-of-the-science book, which they accomplished with
both readability and continuity from chapter to chapter....For the person who wants the most comprehensive, current text on visual development in infants, this is it." --Mark Borchert, American Journal of Ophthamology
"Provides a comprehensive overview of recent work in early visual development....An excellent reference manual for anyone seriously interested in current developments in vision research in the very young." --Ann E. Ellis, Child Development Abstracts and Bibliography
"It is likely to become a classic text in the area of normal infant visual development....Indeed I do not know of any other book which is as complete and well-authored in the field of normal infant development of vision" Optometry and Vision Science
"Combining a sample of the best work in normal and abnormal infant development should make this text a standard reference for visual development students. The table of contents reads like a sample of who's who in the field. Clearly the text will be required reading for graduate students and
scientists interested in visual development, as well as pediatric optometry and ophthalmology...I strongly recommend that this book be included in your public and private holdings."--Contemporary Psychology
