Ophthalmologists need to be familiar with a wide variety of optic nerve diseases that may occur in isolation or form part of a generalized neurological or systemic disorder. Optic Nerve Disorders provides a succinct-yet-comprehensive review of the optic nerve disorders commonly encountered in clinical practice, briefly reviews the anatomy and physiology of the optic nerve, and outlines those techniques of particular importance during clinical testing of optic nerve function. It is a handy reference for the clinician to use in both the diagnosis of disorders and the management of care.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: John W. Chandler, MD, FACS (University of Washington School of Medicine)
Description: This is another superb monograph in the Lifelong Education for the Ophthalmologist series by the American Academy of Ophthalmology. The book focuses upon the optic nerve in disorders involving the eye and central nervous system.
Purpose: The editor has established five important educational objectives that will enhance the clinical acumen of an ophthalmologist and has succeeded in achieving them in grand fashion. The style of the book's layout, tables, illustrations, and references are synergistic in facilitating the use of the monograph for both comprehensive reading and looking up a specific condition.
Audience: This book should be on the required reading list for all ophthalmology and neurology residents. Also, ophthalmologists should have this monograph in their libraries and be familiar with its contents in preparation for board examinations. The contributors are neuro-ophthalmologists who know the subject and know how to educate readers.
Features: Superb illustrations, color clinical photographs, and radiological studies give the reader clear examples of the text's points of emphasis. The table of contents and index are excellent navigational aids for looking up specific subjects. There is a CME credit test at the end of the book.
Assessment: This is an especially valuable book for ophthalmologists. It provides understandable descriptions of complex processes involved in the biology and clinical courses of diseases involving the optic nerve. These conditions, especially early in their course, can be subtle, so detection at this critical time must be based upon solid understanding and application of knowledge of the type richly supplied in this monograph.
From the Publisher

"There are few works targeted primarily to the clinician dealing with optic neuropathies. Drs. Kline and Foroozan have provided just such a resource: concise summaries of the most common optic nerve disorders, with authoritative, current, and practical recommendations for management. This monograph is beautifully illustrated, well organized, and clearly written. I recommend it highly to anyone, in training or beyond, seeking to acquire a basic understanding of optic nerve disease." --Anthony C. Arnold, MD, Professor and Chief, Neuro-Ophthalmology Division, Jules Stein Eye Institute, University of California, Los Angeles

"The diagnosis of optic nerve disorders relies less on the appearance of the optic disc than on the patient's history, clinical examination, and ancillary tests. Each case is a jigsaw puzzle: The more pieces one can put together, the faster the puzzle is solved. When I read the first edition, I thought it was absolutely the best book on the subject of optic nerve disorders I had ever read. There were pearls on every page! Dr. Kline now presents us with a second edition, enhanced by new contributions from a number of young, but distinguished co-authors, as well as a co-editor. Together, they have taken the book to a new level, incorporating both clinical findings and the results of both new and old imaging and electrophysiologic testing. This new edition sparkles in its presentations, explanations, and superb illustrations. It is truly a pi├Ęce de resistance of which the authors should be exceedingly proud." --Neil R. Miller, MD, FACS, Wilmer Eye Institute, John Hopkins Hospital
