Comprehensive and well organized.
I am a 21 year old college student who recently started receiving in-office Vision therapy from a local Behavioral Optometrist to address my binocular vision problems which went untreated throughout my childhood.
This book has been extremely informative and enlightening for me personally. For the first time in my life I am learning information that actually explains in depth the visual issues and related problems and frustrations that I’ve experienced throughout my life.
I bought this ibook about 3 weeks ago, and even though some of the information is above my level to understand and utilize, I really enjoy reading it. The features in the iPad version are very convenient and helpful for me; the embedded web links, the ability to search and view definitions in the page, ect make this very "user friendly".
I believe this book is comprehensive in scale and well organized in format, it's something that should benefit the professional doctor or therapist as well as the student or patient with a desire to learn.
Since I started dramatically benefiting from receiving vision therapy, I have become totally fascinated with learning as much as possible about it. This book has definitely helped me in that goal.
