This book provides an overview by international authorities, spanning the disciplines of neuroscience, psychology, ophthalmology, optometry, and paediatrics, of normal and pathological infant visual development. It covers the development of retinal receptors; infant sensitivity to detail, colour, contrast, and movement; binocularity, eye movements, and refraction; and cognitive processing. Childrens' visual deficits, including amblyopia and cataract, are covered.
