"This book is unique in that it is organized according to symptoms. The text for each symptom includes an introduction, examination checklist, management flowchart, diagnostic criteria, differential diagnosis, and guide to appropriate referral...Chapters include many beautiful illustrations such as examples of radiological studies, color fundus photographs, and visual field charts. Management flow charts are easy to read and understand...Throughout medical school and resident training in all of the specialties and subspecialties, there seems to be an endless search for the book or manual that covers everything one needs to know about a subject, but will still fit in a large pocket. For neuro-ophthalmology, this is that book."
“This is an excellent, clinically relevant book essential to any physician who evaluates patients with potential neuro-ophthalmologic problems.” Journal of Neuro-ophthalmology vol 28 no. 1 March 2008, by Dr Karl Golnik (University of Cincinnati)
A practical, symptom-based guide to diagnosing and treating a wide range of neuro-ophthalmology conditions. It is extremely useful for orthoptists and other specialists interested in this field. The layout of the book is user-friendly covering a variety of symptoms that patients may present with. The Neuro-Ophthalmology Survival Guide is an excellent clinical guide for ophthalmologists, orthoptists and undergraduate orthoptic students. A worthwhile addition to an orthoptic department library.
