In Neuro-Ophthalmology: A Practical Text, Newman (of San Francisco) seeks to create a relatively concise amalgam of detailed didactic instruction on the gross and microscopic anatomy of neuro-ophthalmologic structures and their application to patients seen clinically. In 450 pages, her goal is to create a pragmatic textbook that is useful to the practicing general ophthalmologist, neurologist, and neurosurgeon and to trainees in those fields. It is a monumental task for an individual to undertake—attaining a detailed understanding of the many facets of neuro-ophthalmology and the myriad disorders that produce neuro-ophthalmic manifestations, in addition to providing a concise account of them for the reader. To her great credit, Newman succeeds well.
The book is divided into five sections: (1) the afferent visual system; (2) eye movement disorders; (3) the pupil, the orbit, and cranial nerves I, VII, and VIII; (4) headache and functional disorders; and (5) systemic disorders and the eye.
