Pediatric Optometry: A Pediatrician's Perspective

By Ray C. Wunderlich, Jr., M.D.

In this volume, Dr. Wunderlich describes the factors that medicine considers important in caring for the whole child and the relation to visual functioning. He shares his ideas on the growth and development of the whole child, what he terms the bio-social decline, the effects of faulty nutrition, brain dysfunction, allergy, activity, audition, and medical treatment. He also considers information obtainable through medical and developmental history, optometrists' communication with physicians, and makes observations on optometric care.
