Journal of Neuro-Ophthalmology, Volume 25, Issue 3, Jonathan D. Trobe, MD -- "The chapters are mostly little masterpieces-well written, erudite, comprehensive, well-organized, and well-illustrated. It should be on the shelf of libraries of basic and clinical neuroscience departments and schools of optometry. Practitioners of neurology, neurosurgery, and neuro-ophthalmology will also want one. Like its earlier editions, a classic in the field. There is simply no other source for comprehensive information in neuro-ophthalmology. Many of the chapters are better than comparable ones in leading textbooks of neurology and neurosurgery."-Journal of Neuro-Ophthalmology The New England Journal of Medicine, Volume 353, Issue 6 -- "Nearly every neuro-ophthalmologist owns at least one edition of Walsh & Hoyt's Clinical Neuro-Ophthalmology. The editors, and more than 60 contributing authors, continue this tradition with the sixth edition. Written and edited by some of the leading authorities, this edition includes references to older, pertinent literature, and the value cannot be overstated. The editors have reduced the size of the book from the five volumes of the fifth edition to a more manageable three, without a decline in quality. The book includes an impressive collection of illustrations, illustrating even the rarest of disorders. This book represents an outstanding book and an essential reference for anyone interested in the field."-The New England Journal of Medicine Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), Volume 294, Issue 15 -- "Walsh and Hoyt's Clinical Neuro-ophthalmology is considered the paramount reference text in the field. Broad in scope and impeccably referenced, the multivolume text has regularly provided a comprehensive review of neuro-ophthalmology and the neuro-ophthalmic manifestations of neurologic, ophthalmologic, and systemic disorders. Similar in format to the last edition, the new sixth edition provides a multiauthored, encyclopedic text, rich in clinical acumen and teeming with clinical anecdotes. It is illustrated with black-and-white photographs. Slimmed down from five volumes to a mere three, the sixth edition is a fitting continuation of a time-honored text. Written and edited by international leaders in neuro-ophthalmology, each chapter provides an extensive discourse on the history, clinical features, diagnosis, and treatment of the relevant topic. Although many chapters bear a strong resemblance to those in prior editions, several have been updated extensively to reflect expanding knowledge. Of special note are the chapters on optic neuritis (volume 1) and cerebrovascular disease (volume 2). These outstanding updates demonstrate their individual authors' in-depth understanding of the subject matter and notable ability to organize difficult topics into coherent clinical visions. Walsh and Hoyt's Clinical Neuro-ophthalmology is an essential reference that belongs in every medical library, department of neurology, and department of ophthalmology."-Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA)From the Publisher:
Thoroughly revised and updated for its Sixth Edition, this classic work is the most comprehensive reference on diagnosis and treatment of neuro-ophthalmologic diseases. This edition has two new editors - Valerie Biousse, MD and John B. Kerrison, MD - and has been streamlined from five volumes into three tightly edited volumes with a sharper focus on patient management. Coverage includes major updates on genetics of diseases, new diagnostic techniques, and the newest treatment options. This first volume covers the visual sensory system, the autonomic nervous system, the ocular motor system, the eyelid, facial pain and headache, and nonorganic disease. Volume 2 covers tumors, the phacomatoses, and vascular disease. Volume 3 covers degenerative, metabolic, infectious, inflammatory, and demyelinating diseases.
