This revision and reference text for pre-registration and postgraduate optometrists covers procedures for investigating heterophoria, heterotropia, vergence and accommodative anomalies, and the diagnosis of disorders of voluntary eye movement, nystagmus and supranuclear defects, paresis and non-paralytic incomitancy. Both motor and sensory anomalies are discussed together with syndromes involving oculomotor anomalies. Clinical management is outlined in protocols in an easily assimilable form. The new edition includes two new chapters on vision training and case management which will interest optometrists and orthoptists involved in sports vision, developmental vision therapy and the care of ophthalmic patients with neurological lesions. Pre-registration optometrists will find the chapters on routine orthoptic assessment and the professional qualifying examination of particular interest.
