Apps and all that ... (how my smartphone changed my life). New chapters, new editors and contributors, and an upgraded video collection make Taylor and Hoyt's Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus, 5th Edition, the most current and complete reference available in this evolving field. Editors Scott R. Lambert and Christopher J. Lyons, both globally recognized leaders, provide authoritative coverage of all the pediatric ophthalmic conditions you're likely to encounter in practice, including the latest clinical advances in etiology, diagnosis, and medical and surgical management.
