The Ophthalmology Examinations Review Book Description :

New Edition: The Ophthalmology Examinations Review (3rd Edition)This book is targeted at the final year ophthalmology resident taking the specialist ophthalmology exams, and deals primarily with key topics that are important from the examination viewpoint. Only material that is considered relevant to the exams is covered. The book will help the trainee or resident organize and synthesize knowledge acquired from various other sources or textbooks. While not meant to replace the standard textbooks, it contains enough information to serve as the main revision text nearer the exams.The style of the book is didactic, with questions and short answers. The short answers are designed to be repetitive so as to enhance memory. The answer includes a "model opening statement", followed usually by a classification system to aid organization of facts and then by the bulk of the answer in concise notes. "Exam Tips" are inserted to provide insight into how to answer different types of questions and, when appropriate, a "Clinical Approach" section is also included. Scattered within the text are hundreds of mnemonics to help the candidate in the final stages of preparation for the exams.

Pediatric Neuro Ophthalmology Book Description :

"Due to the generous representation of the afferent visual system within the brain, neurological disease may disrupt vision as a presenting symptom or as a secondary effect of the disease. Conversely, early developmental disturbances of vision often disrupt ocular motor control systems, giving rise to complex disorders such as nystagmus, strabismus, and torticollis. The signs and symptoms of neurological disease are elusive by their very nature, presenting a confounding diagnostic challenge. Neurological medications and neurosurgical treatments can produce neuro-ophthalmological dysfunction that can be difficult to distinguish from disease progression. Affected patients may experience substantial delays in diagnosis, and are often subjected to extensive (and expensive) diagnostic testing. Scientific articles pertaining to specific disorders are scattered throughout medical subspecialty journals. These children continue to "fall through the cracks" of our medical education system. The increasing recognition that pediatric neuro-ophthalmology comprises a distinct set of diseases from those seen in adults has led to its emergence as a dedicated field of study. "Since the original publication of Pediatric Neuro-Ophthalmology nearly fourteen years ago, interest in the field has burgeoned. Pediatric ophthalmology and pediatric neurology subspecialty conferences often include symposia dedicated to recent advances in pediatric neuro-ophthalmology. Technical advances in neuroimaging have given rise to a more integrated mechanistic classification of neuro-ophthalmological disease in children. Our understanding of neurodevelopmental disorders of the visual system has expanded, longstanding monoliths have been dissembled into component parts, basic molecular mechanisms have taken center stage, and genetic underpinnings have become definitional. Evolutionary alterations can now be observed at the level of the gene, adding a new dimension to our understanding of disease pathogene
