This third edition of Visual Fields: Examination and Interpretation contains revisions and updates of earlier material as well as a discussion of newer techniques for assessing visual field disorders. The book begins with a short history of the field of perimetry and goes on to present basic clinical aspects of examination and diagnosis of visual field defects in the optic nerve, optic disc, chorioretina, optic chiasm, optic tract, lateral geniculate field bodies, and the calcarine complex. Additional aspects of visual field examination are explored including those of monocular, binocular, and junctional field defects, congruity vs. incongruity, macular sparing vs. macular splitting, density, wedge-shaped homonymous field loss, and monocular temporal crescent. Various new techniques of automated perimetry are also considered including SITA, FASTPAC, and SWAP. In all, this volume provides a very useful overview of the techniques, both old and new, of visual field examination in a multiplicity of eye disorders and as such will be of interest to all ophthalmologists, neuro-opthalmologists, retina specialists, and optomestrist.

Reviews for Visual Fields

The current version is already quite good. It covers the topic well. The illustrations are good . . . The proposed new authors are all respected authorities in their fields . . . In essence, I think you should go ahead. And I do not think the author need bring in new topics. --Jonathan Trobe, Professor, Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences, and Professo,rDepartment of Neurology I agree with the revisions that Dr. Walsh has proposed, and recommend that you proceed with next edition. --Andrew G. Lee, M.D., Professor of Ophthalmology, Neurology and Neurosurgery, University of Iowa
