Ophthalmology Review: A Case-Study Approach, Second Edition by renowned experts Kuldev Singh, William Smiddy, and Andrew Lee is a practical, case-based reference covering a wide array of common to serious ophthalmic conditions encountered in daily practice. The new edition reflects significant advances in ophthalmologic surgery and additional quick-reference material. The focus is on patient management problems and how to handle them and optimally manage the patient. A cadre of esteemed contributors discuss diagnostic methods, evaluation, contraindications, and patient management issues for a full spectrum of clinical disorders, with significant clinical pearls gleaned from hands-on expertise.
A full spectrum of subspecialties are reflected in nearly 100 ophthalmology cases presented in 11 sections, encompassing the cornea and external disease, lens, glaucoma, retina, uveitis, tumors, posterior segment complications, ocular trauma, neuro-ophthalmology, pediatrics, and oculoplastic surgery. Each succinct case walks readers step by step through patient history, the examination, differential diagnoses, test interpretation, definitive diagnosis, medical and/or surgical management, rehabilitation, and follow up, with handy key point summaries.

It is paramount for clinicians to understand the distinguishing signs and symptoms among many different local and systemic neuro-ophthalmic disorders in order to provide the most efficacious evaluations and treatments. Clinical Pathways in Neuro-Ophthalmology: An Evidence-Based Approach, Third Edition reflects the authors' extensive training and experience in the field of neuro-ophthalmology, as well as updates in the field. Stacy Smith, Andrew Lee, Paul Brazis, and an impressive group of contributors have written an unsurpassed learning tool on how to manage patients with known or presumed neuro-ophthalmologic conditions, in the most logical, straightforward, and cost-effective manner.
The authors share significant clinical pearls and knowledge throughout 20 chapters. The book lays a solid foundation on the management of neurologic eye disorders including symptoms, ophthalmologic testing, diagnosis, and treatment. Among the discussed disorders are anterior and retrobulbar optic neuropathies, disorders of ocular motility and alignment, lid abnormalities, and anisocoria. Insights are provided on key topics including the use of office examinations, laboratory tests, and neuroimaging studies to make an ophthalmologic diagnosis; and ophthalmologic therapy to treat eye movement disorders such as nystagmus.
