Overview

Neuro-Ophthalmic System: Clinical Procedures is a unique and concise guide to the optometric procedures for the evaluation of patients with ocular manifestations of neurologic disease. It will help clinicians increase their level of comfort in diagnosing benign disorders from vision- or life-threatening conditions that require rapid intervention and will teach them how to interpret abnormal findings. In addition, it offers the basic techniques for evaluating the inner eye as well as information on systemic neurologic disease.

The book contains predominantly black-and-white illustrations, with some color illustrations.

This book provides the clinician with the basic techniques for evaluating the inner eye. The text is designed so that optometrists of all levels can increase their level of comfort with the challenge of complicated clinical scenarios in which benign disorders must be separated from vision- or life-threatening conditions requiring rapid intervention. The guide will enable clinicians to perform correct evaluations of extraocular motility problems, visual field defects, and pupillary abnormalities, in order to pinpoint areas of the brain affected by stroke, tumor or demyelination. Information on systemic neurologic disease, including easy instructions for a neurologic screening examination, is provided. The author discusses how to administer many important diagnostic tests, such as contrast sensitivity and exophthalmometry, and how to interpret abnormal findings. A generous amount of illustrations, including 16 color photographs, helps to make this a practical and indispensable clinical reference.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Ian M. Jones, BSc, OD (Omega Health Systems)
Description: This is a practical guide in the evaluation of patients with ocular manifestations of neurological disease.
Purpose: The purpose is to allow clinicians to feel comfortable when evaluating patients with ocular manifestations of neurological disease. These are worthy objectives that I feel have been met. After reading this book, readers can better understand the neuro-ophthalmic system anatomically and are able to correlate it with clinical findings.
Audience: According to the editor, who is a credible authority in this subject matter, the book is written for all eye care clinicians. I feel it is best suited for the optometry student, as it is a good introduction to neuro-ophthalmic procedures, diagnosis, and history taking.
Features: Great instructions on systemic and ophthalmic evaluation of neurological disease are provided, and good diagrams, photos, and differential diagnoses of different neuro-ophthalmic disorders are included. Billing and reimbursement guidelines are included at the end of each chapter. This book is an introduction to neurological disease and procedures in the ocular setting. It does not go into depth and therefore would be best used as a quick reference book for the experienced clinician or as a good introductory book for the optometry student.
Assessment: This is a great introductory book of the neuro-ophthalmic system. Good instructions on neuro-ophthalmic procedures are provided to help assist the clinician in diagnosing and managing different neuro-ophthalmic diseases.
