About this book

Strabismus can be devastating to patients, yet often difficult to treat, even for the most seasoned veteran. The Atlas of Strabismus Surgery, Fourth Edition clearly and succinctly shares with the reader strategies and surgical techniques to improve the care of patients, starting with the simple basics and progressing to more complicated procedures. Updated from the successful third edition, the atlas is designed for resident ophthalmologists and experienced strabismologists alike. Complete with hundreds of color illustrations, The Atlas of Strabismus Surgery, Fourth Edition covers the management of a wide range of strabismus disorders, from the relatively simple horizontal strabismus, to the complex cyclo-vertical deviations.

About the authors

A caring physician, Dr. Kenneth W. Wright is devoted to the welfare of children and the health of their eyes. He is an internationally respected pediatric ophthalmologist and strabismus surgeon.  Dr. Wright started his carrier at USC Keck School of Medicine and Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles serving for 10 years. He then was Director of Pediatric Ophthalmology at The Cleveland Clinic for three years before returning to Los Angeles.  For over twenty years Dr. Wright has enjoyed teaching pediatric ophthalmology and strabismus fellows, and has alumni throughout the world.  Dr. Wright has authored more than 100 scientific research papers and 7 textbooks on ophthalmology and eye surgery including the renowned thousand page text; Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus, by Oxford University Press, the award winning Atlas of Strabismus Surgery, by Springer Publishing, and the top selling book Pediatric Ophthalmology for Primary Care, by the American Academy of Pediatrics.  Dr. Wright has operated on royalty and famous celebrities, however, as fate would have it his youngest of Dr. Wright’s five children developed crossed eyes in infancy.  Rather than refer out, Dr. Wright performed “early surgery” on his own son with great results, as his son later became a top sharp shooter in the US Marines Corp.  Dr. Wright founded the Wright Foundation for Pediatric Ophthalmology, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, whose mission is to reduce blindness and suffering from eye disorders in children through research, education, and clinical care.  To this end, Dr. Wright has established a special pediatric eye clinic that serves underprivileged children.  

Dr. Yi Ning J. Strube is an Assistant Professor and Director of Pediatric Ophthalmology and Adult Strabismus in the Department of Ophthalmology at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. She is both a fellow of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada and a Diplomat of the American Board of Ophthalmology.

Reviews

“The book is concise yet wide ranging, with ample finely drawn illustrations and actual patient and surgical photos. … The text is stepwise enough to benefit a novice or training surgeon, but would simultaneously be useful to a seasoned strabismologist looking to refresh in his mind a rare technique prior to the operation, or to try a new, novel technique such as the aforementioned central tenotomy.” (Andrew L. Reynolds, American Orthoptic Journals, Vol. 66 (1), 2016)
