Walsh & Hoyt's Clinical Neuro-Ophthalmology: The Essentials, 2nd edition

by Neil R Miller (Editor), Nancy J. Newman, John B. Kerrison, Valérie Biousse
  • Soft Cover
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. Doody's Core Titles™ 2009. = Doody's Core Title Review: "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."
