Essentials of Neuro-ophthalmology

by PK Mukherjee

The fascinating subject of neuro-ophthalmology is an enigma that frightens the undergraduates and the postgraduates are initially at ease with cases of neuro-ophthalmology and the general ophthalmologists find them too demanding hence are happy to handover them to neurophysicians or neurosurgeons at the earliest. Neuro-ophthalmology is not an individual entity, it is very much ophthalmology. It has ramifications in other specialties like neuromedicine, neurosurgery, neuroimaging, oncology and otorhinology. Most of those available are huge treatise which are almost classics by themselves. These books create awe in the beginners. The remaining books are too abridged to comprehend. The present book is a veritable “Neuro-ophthalmology Made Easy” meant for both undergraduates and postgraduates. Management of a neuro-ophthalmic disorder is not always within the domain of ophthalmologists who should be aware of the significance of referring the case to consultants in other specialties. They should be able to decide when and to whom a case should be referred to. The present book does not deal with systemic management in details, whenever needed only passing references have been given. The systemic management is better left to neurophysicians or neurosurgeons. The surgical procedures too have been left out. They may be read from specific books. Neuroimaging is proving to be a great boon in neuro-ophthalmic disorders. The students are advised to understand finer points of neuroimaging from books exclusively dealing with the subject.
