Provides a symptom-driven approach to the diagnosis and treatment of major neuro-ophthalmic conditions. With the focus on the patient, this book emphasizes examination and appropriate adjunctive studies, including a discussion of diagnostic imaging modalities, and leads the reader through the sometimes subtle manifestations of neuro-ophthalmic disease to anatomical localization of lesions and definitive diagnosis. An overview of the anatomy of visual pathways is accompanied by many illustrations.
Upon completion of Section 5, readers should be able to:
• Describe a symptom-driven approach to patients with common neuro-ophthalmic complaints in order to formulate an appropriate differential diagnosis
• Select the most appropriate tests and imaging, based on symptomatology, to diagnose and manage neuro-ophthalmic disorders in a cost-effective manner
• Assess eye movement disorders and the ocular motor system
