The effective practice of neuro-ophthalmology requires obtaining a detailed history and physical examination, which form the foundation to diagnose the complex visual disorders that can be caused by disease that affects the eye or the brain. While a dedicated neuro-ophthalmologist has specialized training, it is also extremely important for general neurologists, ophthalmologists, and primary care practitioners to have familiarity with this examination in order to facilitate effective patient care. To develop these skills, it has been traditional to depend on neuro-ophthalmology textbooks. However, most textbooks rely on still figures (or possibly separate supplemental digital resources), which necessarily constrain the ability to fully convey the principles that guide nuanced clinical decision-making.
We are creating the Modern Neuro-Ophthalmology iBook because we believe that this format has the potential to revolutionize didactic methods, creating a completely new experience with fully integrated, seamless, interactive multimedia. Our goal is for this resource to be clear, comprehensive, illustrative, easy to navigate, and enjoyable to use.
What's New in Version 1.9
Updated authorship and copyright page.
Modern Neuro-Ophthalmology provides a better understanding and appreciation of the complex anatomical and physiological features of our visual system. The ability to touch almost every figure in the book to transform it into a narrated video allows for an even better understanding of the concepts provided in the chapters. Can't wait for the next volume!
Love the interactive features!
I love the fact that each figure comes to life with the click of a button! The best to way to learn about the visual system! Plus, it’s written by two docs from Harvard Medical School.
Witten by 2 Harvard Medical School professors and an incredible resource for neurology or ophthalmology!
