This book is a practical, symptom-based, ‘how-to’ guide to neuro-ophthalmology and acquired strabismus for all trainee and practising ophthalmologists and optometrists. Each chapter focusses on a specific clinical symptom and includes an introduction to the clinical assessment of a symptom; an examination checklist; a management flowchart to be followed; clinical diagnostic criteria checklists; and further information on the diseases that can cause the symptom with a brief discussion of appropriate management.
- A practical and accessible handbook for the ophthalmologist or optometrist without a specialist interest in neuro-ophthalmology and acquired strabismus.
- The text simplifies a subject which is often a cause of litigation against practising ophthalmologists and exam failure for trainees and residents.
- The book aids diagnosis in a field in which mistakes may lead to medico-legal problems, e.g. brain tumours presenting with blurred or double vision.
- The book leads the reader from the symptom, through a series of simple but safe flowcharts and check-lists, to the diagnosis or the tests which need to be ordered.
- The first chapter presents 20 ‘golden rules’ to keep you and your patients out of trouble.
- A revised text with some new illustrations brings this highly-praised book up to date.
- New online videos demonstrate abnormal eye movements, eyelid problems and pupil abnormalities.
Review of 2nd Edition: New Zealand Optics ۲۰۱۸
“I anticipated this small text book would be a good read and live up to expectations … I was not disappointed, especially after reading the first chapter ‘Staying out of trouble’ which lists 20 neuro “rules” to keep you out of strife.
This is a short text book designed to be of everyday practical use for ophthalmologists, trainees, optometrists and neurologists, based on clinical symptoms, examination checklists, management flowcharts and referral guidelines.
The chapter on ‘Double vision’ is a wonderful synthesis of an extremely complex topic, but presented in an easily understandable and clinically significant format.
One of my favourite chapters, however, dealt with ‘Seeing things’…and reminds the reader that if the patient presents with visual phenomena that are not consistent with visible intraocular disease processes then referral to a neuro-ophthalmologist or a neurologist is appropriate.
This is a great book to have close to your consulting room. It comes with an eBook version which is downloadable to your electronic screen ensuring great portability and a fantastic set of clinical videos.”
