Reviews

From the reviews:

"This hardback book encompasses 318 pages divided into two parts (‘surgical management of strabismus’ and ‘complications of strabismus surgery’) and 32 chapters. … is especially suited for an ophthalmologist who has recently finished his training in strabismus controlling the theoretical basis and the art of indication and who then enters into surgery. … it becomes evident that both the experienced surgeon as well as the beginner profit from the lecture of this book." (Klaus Ruether, Graefes Archive for Clinical and Experimental Ophthalmology, Vol. 246, 2008)

"Drs. Coats and Olitsky have produced a strabismus surgical atlas worthy of being added to any surgeon’s library. … The text itself has a wealth of illustrations and clinical photos. … Overall, this is an excellent text. It will be great for resident surgeons … . The authors deserve credit for such a fine text." (James D. Reynolds, American Orthoptic Journal, Vol. 58, 2008)
