JOHN W. SIMON, M.D., is professor and chairman of the Department of Ophthalmology at the Albany College and director of the Lions Eye Institute in Albany. He is past-president of the American Association for Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus (AAPOS).
JOSEPH H. CALHOUN, M.D., is director of pediatric ophthalmology at Wills Eye Hospital, (Philadelphia, PA) and clinical professor of ophthalmology at Thomas Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia. Ophthalmology Times has named him one of the "Best Ophthalmologists in America."From Library Journal:
This book by two academic ophthalmologists specializing in pediatric ophthalmology is aimed at an important and unique dual readership: parents and nonophthalmologist physicians, pediatricians, and family practice specialists. The text describes in detail the specific tests of visual function most often used in diagnosing children's eye conditions. Also covered are the full range of common eye problems as well as many rarely occurring diseases or conditions. The writing is straightforward but not overly simplified, and the illustrations are an appropriate mix of photographs and sketches. The only weak point is the book's coverage of genetic eye diseases: for example, Leber's congenital amaurosis is given two paragraphs, while Usher syndrome and juvenile retinoschisis are not mentioned. Collections with frequent queries concerning genetic diseases may want to supplement this text with Saul Merin's Inherited Eye Diseases (Dekker, 1991). Still, this volume is highly recommended for all public and hospital patient education collections.?Pamela C. Sieving, W.K. Kellogg Eye Ctr., Univ. of Michigan, Ann Arbor
