This is the first book that integrates new diagnostic tests with old ones to facilitate surgical decisionmaking on eyes where direct fundus examination is impossible. The authors have had experience with Robert Machemer at the Bascom Palmer Eye Institute, with D. Jackson Coleman at the Institute of Ophthalmology of Columbia University, New York, and with Karl Ossoinig at the University of Iowa, Iowa City. In addition, they have performed examinations of more than 3,000 patients with opaque media, followed by more than 1,500 operations on these same patients. Their extensive experience is reflected in the presentation of these new modalities for examination, described with beautiful clarity and accompanied by many appropriate drawings and illustrations of the findings from the many disorders of the posterior ocular segment and after ocular injury.

The various sections include initial evaluation by usual examination and retinal function tests, bright-flash electroretinogram, visually evoked potential or response
