Taylor & Hoyt’s Pediatric Ophthalmology & Strabismus (Elsevier) is a 1,000-page, 107-chapter textbook that covers the entire spectrum of paediatric eye disease. Edited by Scott R. Lambert and Christopher J. Lyons, it is a comprehensive, full-fledged reference text that can serve as the cornerstone of an ophthalmologist’s knowledge in this subspecialty.

High-quality photographs, including fundus and OCT, drawn from paediatric specialists around the world, make this text especially attractive.

Particularly helpful, especially for the general ophthalmologist, is Section 7: Common Practical Problems. Each chapter in this section covers one single presenting complaint, such as “I think my baby can’t see!” and “My child seems to hate the bright light”. These chapters provide a step-by-step approach to each problem and include direct references to the chapter in which each potential diagnosis is further discussed in detail.

Purchase of this book provides the reader with access to the eBook via Expert Consult eBooks, allowing electronic access on a variety of platforms. This includes a series of videos that accompany the text.

This book is ideal for paediatric ophthalmology fellows and specialists, general ophthalmologists without direct, immediate access to paediatric specialists and anyone particularly interested in immersing him/herself in the field.
