The revised and updated 2nd Edition of this popular handbook offers practical, clinical guidance on the diagnosis and therapeutic management of the 22 most common neuro-ophthalmic disorders. Pocket-sized for portability, it's organized to make essential information easy to find. Each chapter follows the same consistent format—overview and etiology, physical examination, differential diagnosis, investigation and treatment. Photographs, figures, and tables summarize data for quick reference, and case reports throughout illustrate approaches to treatment. Five brand-new chapters on orbital disease reflect the growing prevalence of this disorder in practice.
