Overview

This convenient, portable handbook presents the most essential and clinically oriented material from the classic three-volume reference, Walsh & Hoyt's Clinical Neuro-Ophthalmology, Sixth Edition. The editors have condensed selected chapters on neuro-ophthalmic examination and diseases and reorganized them into a single-volume reference to make clinical neuro-ophthalmology more accessible to general ophthalmologists, neurologists, and residents.

Five major sections cover the afferent visual system, the pupil, the efferent (ocular motor) system, the eyelid, and neuro-ophthalmologic manifestions of nonorganic disease. Much of the material—particularly on visual sensory and ocular motor disorders—has been significantly updated for this handbook.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Kenneth S Shindler, MD, PhD (University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine)
Description: This book highlights the most essential aspects of neuro-ophthalmology for a broad array of practitioners, adapted from the comprehensive presentation of the field detailed in the sixth edition of Walsh and Hoyt's Clinical Neuro-Ophthalmology, 6th edition (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2005).
Purpose: The authors' objective is to present the most essential clinical aspects of neuro-ophthalmology for practitioners who do not need the level of detail and exhaustive referencing found in the textbook. This is an important endeavor because practitioners in many fields encounter neuro-ophthalmologic disorders and need manageable references to guide their practice. The objectives are well met by the material presented.
Audience: The book is written for physicians and students who find that the textbook contains more information than they want or need. It is well suited for ophthalmologists, neurologists, primary care and emergency medicine practitioners, as well students and trainees in ophthalmology and neurology. It is written by some of the foremost authorities on neuro-ophthalmology.
Features: The book covers a full array of clinical neuro-ophthalmologic disorders including those affecting the afferent and efferent visual systems, pupils, and eyelids, as well as nonorganic disease with neuro-ophthalmic manifestations. Chapters are adaptations of chapters from the main book. Major and minor subheadings found in each chapter are listed at the beginning of the chapter to help readers quickly find the topics they need.
Assessment: This is a well written and organized review of the current understanding and practice of neuro-ophthalmology. The book is easy to navigate to help the interested practitioner or student quickly find an appropriate level of detail about specific findings and conditions. The second edition is necessary because it covers information from the significantly updated sixth edition of Walsh and Hoyt.
