The Basic Bookshelf for Eyecare Professionals is a series that provides fundamental and advanced material with a clinical approach to clinicians and students. A special effort was made to include information needed for the certification exams in ophthalmic and optometric assisting, low vision, surgical assisting, opticianry, and contact lens examiners.
Visual Fields, by Neil T. Choplin, MD, and Russell P. Edwards MD, discusses the anatomic basis for visual field defects, reviews the methods for testing problems in the visual fields, and gives guidelines for interpretation.
The first section provides a foundation of visual fields including description, common terminology, and anatomy. Specifically, the authors highlight how lesions within the visual pathways give rise to visual field defects. The second section outlines the methods of testing, from basic to advanced. The book emphasizes efficiency in testing areas in a number of clinical settings. An entire chapter is dedicated to common errors in visual field testing and ways to minimize them. The final section includes an atlas of common visual field defects due to glaucoma, neurological disease, and other medical conditions. Advancements in visual field testing equipment and software for automated perimeters are thoroughly researched and reviewed.
The book contains black-and-white illustrations.
