Review quote

The chapters are well-written and contain a multitude of diagrams and tables to help explain the teaching points. This book addresses all the key topics related to neurophthalmology and is nicely divided into sections beginning with the basics of the initial ocular evaluation, and finishing with multiple chapters addressing the discoveries of the initial examination in detail. The numerous images and illustrations help the reader to understand each concept fully. "Neuro-Ophthalmology: The Practical Guide", with its handsome hardbacked cover, is filled with many clinical pearls that make it a magnificient addition to anyone's library for the price.--Journal of Neurosurgeryshow more
