More than 30 years ago, Neuro-Ophthalmology Review Manual, presented a unique and user-friendly approach to address clinical neuro-ophthalmology principles used in everyday practice.

Kline, MD and Rod Foroozan, MD are joined by seven contributors on this Seventh Editionwho have organized the book to provide the essential key information on neuro-ophthalmic disorders. The inclusion of over 130 illustrations and 29 tables allows for a user-friendly format and quick access to valuable information. The Seventh Editionprovides a timely and comprehensive update to the current information, effective exercises, and case studies, as well as the addition of a chapter on neuroimaging. Neuro-Ophthalmology Review Manual, Seventh Editionis a succinct text for all practitioners and residents in ophthalmology, neurology, and neurosurgery. A popular choice among colleagues for more than 30 years, this a must have resource in neuro-ophthalmology Reviews from the past edition: "For the doctor who sees the occasional neuro-ophthalmology patient, this book should be an excellent resource. Residents should read this book, because they can learn the subject material. The book could also be an excellent resource on a general practitioner's shelf, because it is concise and easy to use." -William V. Good, Smith-Kettlewell Eye Research Institute, San Francisco, California, Optometry and Vision Science "Overall, this is a very good introductory textbook for residents in ophthalmology and neurology and can be used as a quick reference book by practitioners in either discipline. It is still the best-sized review book available on the topic for residents preparing for their in-training exams and will continue to be a popular choice for this purpose." -Nurhan Torun, MD, FRCSC, Canadian Journal of Ophthalomogy
