New to this edition
  • A revised text with some new illustrations brings this highly-praised book up to date.
  • New online videos demonstrate abnormal eye movements, eyelid problems and pupil abnormalities.

Key Features
  • A practical and accessible handbook for the ophthalmologist or optometrist without a specialist interest in neuro-ophthalmology and acquired strabismus.
  • The text simplifies a subject which is often a cause of litigation against practising ophthalmologists and exam failure for trainees and residents.
  • The book aids diagnosis in a field in which mistakes may lead to medico-legal problems, e.g. brain tumours presenting with blurred or double vision.
  • The book leads the reader from the symptom, through a series of simple but safe flowcharts and check-lists, to the diagnosis or the tests which need to be ordered.
  • The first chapter presents 20 ‘golden rules’ to keep you and your patients out of trouble.
