From the Back Cover
Reviews from the First Edition "Nigel Daw has written an outstanding book that provides a much-needed summary and synthesis of the impressive recent advances in the experimental study of disorders of visual development…Professor Daw’s book is unique for its succinct yet thorough coverage of these complex topics. This book excels at distilling the results from many studies in a manner that should greatly facilitate exchange of information between the clinical and basic sciences. The book is written at a level that is appropriate both for the beginner in the field and the expert…Basic scientists will gain an appreciation for the range of clinical aspects of human developmental visual disorders and clinicians will find a convenient and readable summary of the current state of knowledge of the physiological basis of visual system development." Reprinted from American Orthoptic Journal Volume 46 (1996). Review by J.N. Ver Hoeve with permission from The University of Wisconsin Press. "...Research on visual development now spans a wide variety of disciplines encompassing biochemistry, anatomy, electrophysiology, psychophysics, clinical ophthalmology, and other related topics. It is difficult to present a thorough overview of such a broad range of topics in a simple, concise manner. However, Nigel Daw has masterfully accomplished this task in his book. It is well organized, informative, easy to read, and enjoyable." Reprinted from American Journal of Ophthalmology, V121(2), Book Reviews, 1996, with permission from Elsevier. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
