Reviews

"A simple, clear manual for neophytes and experts, scientists and clinicians. Rich in color diagrams, which are keys to understanding each movement and pathway. The easy-reading crib notes complement the classic tomes of ocular motility."--Lawrence Tychsen, MD, Professor of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences, Pediatrics, Anatomy and Neurobiology, Washington University School of Medicine
"This unique book offers an exceptionally well-organized approach to eye movement disorders. The clever format and numerous color illustrations make this a very readable and practical text for both trainees and clinicians."--Martin W. ten Hove, MD, M.Eng, FRCS(c), Associate Professor of Ophthalmology, Queen's University
"In this comprehensive approach to eye movements, Dr. Agnes Wong simplifies the complex systems of ocular motility into teachable bullet points, at once both accessible to the student and practical for the clinician, while maintaining a high standard of intellectual rigor and scientific validity. The book is highly illustrated with wonderful full-color schematic diagrams and tables. It is at the same time a reference text and a practical guide, ideal for the
teacher as well as the practitioner."--Nancy J. Newman, MD, Professor of Ophthalmology and Neurology, Emory University School of Medicine

"This readable and contemporary description of a difficult topic is well organized, walking the fine line between being comprehensive and exhaustive. The book is easy to understand and the CD-Rom has excellent video clips."--Doody's
"This is a unique book in many ways...Neuro-ophthalmologists will feel at home here. The author takes the outline concept and massage it very usefully. It is not a book that needs to be read cover to cover, although that would be edifying. It can be used as a great reader resource/reference book to use for specific assistance. I am confident that I will use this book...I recommend this book for its knowledge, its usefulness, its organization. It is succinct but
accurate."--James D. Reynolds, M.D. for American Orthoptic Journal
