Coverage of each diagnostic category includes background information, symptoms, case analysis, and management options. Case studies appear at the end of each chapter.

The thoroughly revised chapters on vision therapy procedures and instrumentation describe the latest equipment and computer software. The chapters on advanced diagnostic and management issues have been updated with the latest research.
