For someone wanting a fairly concise yet comprehensive review of the
current field of electrophysiolgic testing, as well as illustrations of the
test results for a wide variety of retinal and optic pathway diseases, this
is the book to get.
This book is one in the series of ophthalmology monographs published
by the Foundation of the American Academy of Ophthalmology and is included
in the Lifelong Education for the Ophthalmologist (LEO) program. This second
edition expands on the first, with chapters on new subjects, more illustrations,
excellent photography of retinal diseases (many quite rare), and comprehensive
references. Typical of the LEO program, the book concludes with a self-study
examination and a tear-out form that can be submitted for up to 25 category
1 continuing medical education credits.
