Book Description

The Handbook of Clinical Neurology Vol 102: Neuro-Ophthalmology provides a comprehensive discussion of the field of neuro-ophthalmology. The book is organized into four sections. Section 1 lays out fundamental concepts of the visual system and eye movements. It discusses the anatomy and physiology of the afferent visual system and the ocular motor system, and the neuro-ophthalmological examination. Section 2 deals with disorders of the afferent visual system, covering retinal disorders; abnormalities of the optic disc; lesions of the optic nerve; the optic chiasm; disorders of the optic tract, radiation, and occipital lobe; disorders of higher visual processing; and rehabilitative techniques.

Section 3 discusses ocular motor abnormalities, including infranuclear ocular motor disorders; nuclear, internuclear, and supranuclear ocular motor disorders; nystagmus and saccadic intrusions; disorders of higher gaze control; and normal and abnormal lid function. Section 4 covers disorders of the pupil; neuro-ophthalmology of orbital disease; and functional neuro-ophthalmology. This book will be useful to early-stage physicians, as well as specialists interested in the latest developments in neuro-ophthalmology.
