Published Reviews

"an excellent neuro-ophthalmology reference that will serve both trainees and seasoned practitioners well. It is easily readable and comprehensive without being overwhelming and cumbersome in detail"

"Overall, I can give this book a strong recommendation: it is easy to navigate, well-written by exceptional neuro-ophthalmologists, and comprehensive. It is an excellent foundation textbook providing middle ground between an encyclopaedic source and an atlas."

"The book and accompanying website are very useful to the intended audience. In this third edition, not only are chapters updated, developing trends are also added and outdated articles and texts removed."
