Like the yellow-bellied sapsucker, a neuro-ophthalmology text used to
be a very "rare bird." In recent months, a relative plethora of new or reissued
neuro-ophthalmology texts have emerged on the bookstore shelves. A recent
addition to this onslaught is the fifth edition of Neuro-Ophthalmology
Review Manual by Kline and Bajandas. True to earlier releases, the
present edition retains the same outline, "just the facts ma'am," "Dragnet"
style. New to the fifth edition are updated organized bibliographies, extended
material on eye movements and nystagmus, and 2 new chapters entitled "Disorders
of Higher Visual Function" and "Phakomatoses." Altogether, the revised text
maintains its niche as a good study guide, clinic companion, and on-call reference
