About this book

This practical guide provides an algorithm for diagnosis and treatment, from ‘having some problem with vision’, via diagnosis of cause and background, to treatment and eventually to rehabilitation.

Following on from introductory sections devoted to the role of neuro-ophthalmology, recent developments in the field, and an overview of neuro-ophthalmological examinations, there are sections devoted to the different parts of the visual system, and finally a section on rehabilitation.

Neuro-ophthalmology is aimed at ophthalmologists, neurologists, neurosurgeons, traumatologists, neuroradiologists, experts in cardiology and stroke, and trainees in these areas. It will also be of interest to neuro-rehabilitation specialists, neuropsychologists, and those working in typhlopedagogy and health informatics.

Reviews

“The book really is a tour de force. The illustrations, of which there is an ample number, are generally of excellent quality, including MRIs, CTs, fundus photographs, and visual field reproductions. In summary, there currently are a host of fine textbooks available for the reader who wishes to learn about the diagnosis and management of known or presumed neuroophthalmological disorders, but there is none any better than this one. Get it, read it, and learn from it!” (Neil R. Miller, Journal of Neuro-Ophthalmology, October, 2016)


“The book is a perfect example of the holistic approach … . With its 700-plus pages, attractive design, careful editing and brilliant figures, the book could rightly apply for the title ’Medical Book of the Year’ and the reviewer (who is biased towards the authors) would whole-heartedly support this application. According to the saying of Terentianus, (“habent sua fata libelli”) all books have their own destiny and I do hope this book is destined for success. The reviewer willingly recommends this book not only to residents, specialty registrars and specialists but also to everyone interested in neuroophthalmology, neurology, ophthalmology, neurosurgery or radiology, as well as to internists who treat patients with neuroophthalmological symptoms and complaints.” (Prof. Dr. László Csiba, Head, Department of Neurology, University of Debrecen, Hungary, Doctor of Sciences,  Hungarian Academy of Sciences, Corresponding Member,  Hungarian Academy of Sciences)
