From the Back Cover:

The optic nerve and the brain comprise the main anatomic components of neuro-ophthalmology. Although there are numerous handbooks and major texts describing all the common disorders of neuro-ophthalmology, OPTIC NERVE DISORDERS provides a practical reference book focusing only on common optic nerve disorders.

This book is organized by optic nerve diagnoses commonly encountered in a neuro-ophthalmologic practice. It is written in a clear, concise style for quick, easy reference in the clinic. The organization of each chapter includes:

- epidemiology;

- diagnosis by clinical signs and symptoms and by electrophysiologic, ocular and neuroimaging techniques;

- pathophysiology;

- management by conventional treatments ; experimental/newer medications under consideration;

- prognosis.

Updated information on diagnostic techniques, including OCT and mfVEP, and genetic testing for hereditary optic neuropathies are discussed.  New data from clinical studies, such as beta-interferons for optic neuritis, are presented for the management of each disorder. Diagnosis of neuro-ophthalmologic disorders with newer neuroimaging techniques, such as PET, SPECT, and diffusion-weighted imaging are fully explained. New data from clinical studies (beta-interferons for optic neuritis, for instance) will be presented for the management of each disorder.

Review:

"The nine chapters authored by Dr. Chan are excellent and up-to-date...a well-written textbook...recommended without reservation." --Walter Jay, M.D. ,Neuro-Ophthalmology, 34 (5-6), 379, 2010

From the reviews: “The text is intended to provide salient information about common optic nerve disorders and it successfully achieves this goal. ... This is a beautifully organized textbook that serves as an excellent review of optic nerve disorders. It is also comprehensive enough to serve as a reference book on this subject. New data and treatment options are thoroughly covered ... . It is highly recommended for clinicians and students ... who would like to enhance their understanding of optic nerve disorders.” (Airaj Fasluddin, American Orthoptic Journal, Issue 59, 2009)
