Description

A practical, symptom-orientated handbook of neuro-ophthalmology for all trainee and practising ophthalmologists.

Key Features

  • Practical and accessible handbook for the ophthalmologist without a specialist interest in neuro-ophthalmology and acquired strabismus.
  • Simplifies a subject which is often a cause of litigation against pracising ophthalmologists and exam failure for trainees and residents.
  • Aids diagnosis in a field in which mistakes may lead to medico-legal problems, eg brain tumours presenting with blurred or double vision.
  • Symptom-orientated - guides the reader from the presenting symptom to diagnosis and treatment or referral, through a series of easy to follow flowcharts.
  • Chapter One presents 20 "golden rules" to keep you and your patients out of trouble
