This handbook provides practical guidance for trainee and practicing ophthalmologists on neuro-ophthalmology and acquired strabismus. Organized by specific clinical symptoms, each chapter includes an introduction to the clinical assessment, an examination checklist, a management flowchart, diagnostic criteria checklists, and information on related diseases with a brief discussion of appropriate management.
This text is designed to simplify a complex subject, which is often a cause of litigation for practicing ophthalmologists and a challenge for trainees and residents. It offers a safe and reliable approach to diagnosis, avoiding potential medico-legal problems in cases such as brain tumors presenting with blurred or double vision.
The book starts with 20 “golden rules” to keep both patients and practitioners out of trouble. The revised text, accompanied by new illustrations, provides up-to-date information on the topic. In addition, the book includes online videos that demonstrate abnormal eye movements, eyelid problems, and pupil abnormalities.
Overall, this practical and accessible guide is essential reading for ophthalmologists who do not specialize in neuro-ophthalmology and acquired strabismus but may encounter related symptoms in their practice.
