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 source.
