diagnosis and management of ocular motility disorders

by 41jcllexahl

  • alec m. ansons (author),
  • helen davis (author)

 

this comprehensive, clinically-grounded textbook, now in its fourth edition, supports orthoptists and ophthalmologists in decision-making through the patient care process, from presentation to discharge.

written by authors with extensive experience in teaching and research, diagnosis and management of ocular motility disorders offers a clear and practical overview of assessment and management principles and further explores the clinical features of specific disorders, from amblyopia and infantile strabismus to supranuclear and infranuclear disorders, as well as other miscellaneous disorders of ocular movement. a brand new chapter on congenital cranial dysinnervation disorders reflects recent advances in gene mapping and increased understanding of this condition, and a new appendix provides surgical dose tables for easy reference.

now in full colour throughout, with additional diagrams and photographs of surgical techniques, this remains the key reference text for orthoptic and ophthalmic professionals managing patients with eye movement disorders.

eye movement disorders in clinical practice signs and syndromes

by 41alu7mhl5l

  • shirley h. wray (author)

 

in eye movement disorders in clinical practice, a leading expert with over thirty years of teaching experience in neurology and neuro-ophthalmology offers comprehensive instruction on the diagnosis and treatment of all varieties of eye movement disorders. this important new text reflects the importance of correlating clinical signs of disorders in the oculomotor system with their neuroanatomic and neurophysiologic architecture. with its focus on signs and symptoms, the book advances lesion localization of eye movement disorders as the central clinical concern. the reader is also presented with a fresh review of bedside examination techniques in the er, icu, and walk-in clinic; productive ways of taking a clinical history; sign interpretation; source lesion localization; and, where appropriate, therapy.

unlike most of the titles on eye movement disorders, this book’s chapters are arranged according to objective signs – like ptosis, neuromuscular syndromes, dizziness, vertigo, and syndromes of the medulla – rather than disease entities. this emphasis on the topographic analysis of symptoms and signs is contrary to the prevailing clinical approach in which responsibility for therapy typically drives the clinician to arrive at an etiological diagnosis as rapidly as possible. at risk in this process is nothing less than the art of clinical medicine. one of the aims of this book is to reverse this process, and move clinicians back to the observation and interpretation of signs.

the text features over 100 clinical cases, each one challenging the reader to determine the neuroanatomical location of the patient’s lesion. this exercise provides the anatomical guidance needed to make critical diagnostic and management decisions in patients who often present with abnormal eye movements. dynamic and intellectually stimulating, eye movement disorders in clinical practice is essential for any reader wanting to better understand eye movement disorders.

neuro ophthalmology what do i do now

by neuro-ophthalmology

  • matthew j. thurtell (author),
  • robert l. tomsak (author),
  • robert b. daroff (author)

neuro-ophthalmology is a field of medicine that touches on every subspecialty in neurology, but has an undeserved reputation as a branch of knowledge that is difficult to learn and practice. many neurologists and ophthalmologists do not receive sufficient exposure to neuro-ophthalmology during their residencies, and are uncomfortable diagnosing and treating patients with neuro-ophthalmic problems.

authored by neuro-ophthalmologists whose careers span three generations in the field, neuro-ophthalmology helps clinicians evaluate and manage patients with neuro-ophthalmic problems. this “curb-side consult” approach is divided into five sections: afferent (visual) disorders; efferent (eye movement) disorders; eyelid disorders; pupil disorders; and combination syndromes. based on the most current scholarly evidence and filled with practical advice, neuro-ophthalmology provides the answers to “what do i do now ”
