Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: 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.
