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.
