Formatted for practical problem solving, the new 3rd edition of this clinical resource manual covers the full spectrum of eye disorders, eye examinations, vision screening, strabismus, dyslexia, ocular trauma, genetic syndromes, and all the diverse pediatric-specific eye disorders you are likely to encounter. “This book is a useful and well presented source of pediatric ophthalmology. The excellent photos are clear and crisp.” Stephen Mikell, MD, Ochsner Clinic Foundation, Doody’s Review, 2008.Clear, concise explanations and recommendations are complemented by numerous figures and photographs demonstrating eye pathology. Includes more than 200 color images; ready access to expert guidance through all the steps in effective diagnosis and intervention, including laboratory workup, etiology, differential diagnosis, preferred treatment approach, clinical course, prognosis, and indications for referral; expanded chapter on amblyopia and strabismus; new information on the importance of maintaining physiologic hypoxia; and down syndrome.

The interior of the eye consists of the lens, the anterior and posterior
chambers, and the vitreous cavity. The lens is suspended behind the pupil by
cord‑like structures called zonules. Zonules are attached to the ciliary body,
a muscle that controls lens focusing. The cornea and lens are the refractive
elements of the eye. The cornea is a strong, fixed‑focus lens structure, while
the crystalline lens is less powerful but is able to change focus to fine‑tune
image clarity and provide near focusing. The anterior chamber is the space
between the iris and cornea and the posterior chamber is the thin space
between the lens and the back of the iris. The anterior and posterior cham‑
bers are in front of the lens and are filled with a clear nutrient fluid called the
aqueous humor or “aqueous.” Aqueous humor circulates around the lens
and the posterior aspect of the cornea providing nutrition and oxygen to
these avascular tissues. Behind the lens is the vitreous cavity, a large cavity
filled with a clear gel called the vitreous humor or “vitreous” (Figure 1‑2).
