In this 2-book fifth volume of the most recent edition of Walsh and Hoyt's Clinical Neuro-Ophtholmology, Dr Miller has compiled a clinically pertinent and scientifically thorough conclusion to the 5-volume series. In 1947, Dr Walsh wrote what was to become the ultimate literary authority on neuro-ophthalmology. Later, Dr Hoyt collaborated with Dr Walsh to create an updated version of the textbook in 1969. Dr Miller has courageously undertaken the daunting task of updating this neuroophthalmology "Bible" in the modern era of knowledge explosion. In the fifth side of this literary pentagon, the first volume of which was published in 1982, he has completed his mission.
