The first section covers the general assessment and investigation of the squinting patient, before considering whether surgery is the best form of treatment. The second section addresses common squint disorders, describing the conditions and highlighting the surgical options to be considered. The final section provides a step-by-step account of the surgical procedures, indicating when they should be used, and illustrating specific techniques. This is an essential manual for trainees in clinical practice and those preparing for examinations who need to know how to competently manage this commonly encountered disorder. Optometrists will also find it of great value when managing these patients both pre- and post-operatively.
