Worth and Chavasse's Squint: The Binocular Reflexes and the Treatment of Strabismus

Worth and Chavasse's Squint: The Binocular Reflexes and the Treatment of Strabismus This book is a revision and reorganization of the material which appeared in the eighth edition. It is unfortunate that the only trace of Bernard Chavasse's brilliant literary style is to be found in the quotations which head each chapter, but it must be admitted that the reorganization of the book is for the better. The book now stands as a clear-cut exposition of Chavasse's ideas with regard to the cause and pathogenesis of strabismus. The authors naturally have added their own ideas, but without obscuring Chavasse's principal thesis. The last chapter, entitled Incidence of Squint and Theories of Causation, is particularly interesting in that it presents a concise review of and critical comment on past theories on the cause of squint. No mention is made of the two aspects of strabismus that are currently prominent—the accommodation convergence to accommodation ratio and the' A and V syndrome.
