Save my selection. Leonard A. Levin and Anthony C. New York: Thieme; An easy-access, topic-oriented, medical text, when organized efficiently and without too much overlap of subjects, is always valuable to busy practitioners.
Organized by topics, and with a list of contributingauthors that represent the who's who of neuro-ophthalmology, the text is a fast read, lean in that it does not flood the reader with marginal information, and well-organized. The chapters are organized by topic and generally written by one or two contributing authors. Section 1 begins in standard fashion with 3 chapters on the neuro-ophthalmic examination. Next comes a series of chapters on neuro-ophthalmic signs and symptoms, followed by 17 chapters on various diagnoses, ranging from cranial nerve palsies to optic nerve disorders.
The last 6 chapters cover neuro-ophthalmic procedures, with the final chapter a review of billing for neuro-ophthalmologic disease. This final chapter is unique for a medical text and also a welcome addition to the book, which is intended to be a hands-on, in-the-office text. The intent of this book is to afford practitioners, principally those who are not neuro-ophthalmologists, an easy-to-use reference.

Presumably the person using this book would be a vision specialist who occasionally encounters patients with neuro-ophthalmology problems, but who does not see enough people with these diseases to easily know how to guide their evaluation and management. With that in mind, I evaluated whether this book accomplishes this goal. I first evaluated this book by the effectiveness of its index to quickly guide the reader to a topic. In the old days of medical writing, these indexes were generated by the author of the book, but nowadays are usually assembled by software that scans text for key or highlighted words.
I don't know which approach the authors used, but the index is sound and useful. A good image or picture of a disease can be very useful to a busy practitioner, and I found the photos, illustrations, patient examples, and scans to be quite good. Get free access to newly published articles.

The Neuro-Ophthalmology Survival Guide - 2nd Edition
Vision complaints are often difficult for patients to articulate. In addition, neuro-ophthalmic patients commonly present with an array of seemingly disjointed complaints, offering a considerable challenge to even to the most determined historian.
