This monograph entitled “Strabismus: Prevalence, Recognition and Management” comprises a unique compilation of 12 chapters representing original research of the authors and supported by a comprehensive review on the topic. All chapters are well-illustrated, well-tabulated, linguistically lucid and easy to understand. The uniqueness of this monograph lies in the fact that it elucidates some of the most cited strabismus research in the last two decades which has led to fundamental changes in the understanding of ocular misalignment and its management, all within one cover. In doing so, it provides a synopsis of research articles covered in at least 50 journals, thus aiding both the novice and the experienced strabismologist in accessing easily available literature on the subject, by the same authors of those research articles. The contributors are from many countries — Argentina, Brazil, Germany, India, the United Kingdom and the United States of America — thus assimilating different practice patterns and research styles in one book.

Conforming to the theme of strabismus prevalence, recognition and management, the monograph overviews certain “newer” forms of “neuro-anatomical” strabismus associated with abnormal orbital anatomy and connective tissue morphology like age-related strabismus (sagging eye syndrome) and myopic strabismus, provides the constellation of symptoms and signs of ocular misalignment associated with brain injury, updates the readers on the genetics of strabismus, describes newer imaging modalities that have been used in strabismus diagnostics like optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) and high resolution surface coil orbital magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), elucidates innovative experimental studies delineating the normal and abnormal physiology of ocular movements, emphasizes certain unique strabismus surgical modalities that have gained popular attention in this decade, namely lateral rectus split with nasal transposition as well as rectus extraocular muscle plication and also provides a vast and extensive overview of the pharmacological management of strabismus with botulinum toxin type A (BTXA). It is anticipated that this unique compendium finds a place in the academic arsenal of all strabismologists as a ready reference book.

Reviews

“Dr. Zia Chaudhuri has edited and helped author this new text, providing both ophthalmic surgeons and visual scientists help in understanding complex forms of strabismus and corrective surgical methods. She has put her training with the eminent strabismologist Dr. Joseph Demer PhD, MD at the University of California Los Angeles (USA) to great use. Her book allows the reader to digest contributions from an array of leaders in strabismus research from an international range of academic centers: Argentina, Brazil, Germany, Turkey, the United Kingdom, as well as Houston and Los Angeles. Both clinicians and scientists seeking new insights into strabismus mechanisms and novel procedures will benefit from this important work.’ – Lawrence Tychsen, M.D., John F.
