Reviews

“There is extensive coverage of both common and uncommon disorders, which should be of great benefit to trainees as well as comprehensive ophthalmologists who may encounter patients with these conditions very infrequently. … this book has achieved its goal of providing a practical guide written by expert authors in a style accessible to residents, fellows, and comprehensive ophthalmologists. … pediatric phthalmologists also would benefit from the tips and descriptions regarding patients with less common and/or more challenging disorders.” (Prem S. Subramanian, Graefe's Archive for Clinical and Experimental Ophthalmology, Vol. 256 (3), March, 2018)
“This extensive text is a new addition to a small group of noted pedicatric ophthalmology texts. Drs. Traboulsi and Utz have edited a book that is worthy of this group. … The text is well supplied with case studies/examples that illustrate and emphasize nicely, as intended. ... It is designed as a practical tool to enhance management. It succeeds very well at this. The casual user should be extremely pleased.” (James D. Reynolds, American Orthoptic Journal, Vol. 67, 2017)
