This is a great book to have close to your consulting room 2018 BMA Awards: Highly Commended, Surgical Specialties Review of 2nd Edition: New Zealand Optics 2018 I anticipated this small text book would be a good read and live up to expectations . I was not disappointed, especially after reading the first chapter 'Staying out of trouble' which lists 20 neuro rules to keep you out of strife. This is a short text book designed to be of everyday practical use for ophthalmologists, trainees, optometrists and neurologists, based on clinical symptoms, examination checklists, management flowcharts and referral guidelines. The chapter on 'Double vision' is a wonderful synthesis of an extremely complex topic, but presented in an easily understandable and clinically significant format. One of my favourite chapters, however, dealt with 'Seeing things'.and reminds the reader that if the patient presents with visual phenomena that are not consistent with visible intraocular disease processes then referral to a neuro-ophthalmologist or a neurologist is appropriate. This is a great book to have close to your consulting room. It comes with an eBook version which is downloadable to your electronic screen ensuring great portability and a fantastic set of clinical videos.

American Journal of Ophthalmology This book is unique in that it is organized according to symptoms.

Throughout medical school and resident training in all of the specialties and subspecialties, there seems to be an endless search for the book or manual that covers everything one needs to know about a subject, but will still fit in a large pocket. For neuro-ophthalmology, this is that book. Survey of Ophthalmology The Neuro-Ophthalmology Survival Guide is a fantastic resource for anyone involved in eye care, both those in training and in practice.
