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