It is a handy reference for the clinician to use in both the diagnosis of disorders and the management ofcare.

Editorial Reviews

"The diagnosis of optic nerve disorders relies less on the appearance of the optic disc than on the patient's history, clinical examination, and ancillary tests. Each case is a jigsaw puzzle: The more pieces one can put together, the faster the puzzle is solved. When I read the first edition,I thought it was absolutely the best book on the subject of optic nerve disorders I had ever read. There were pearls on every page! Dr. Kline now presents us with a second edition, enhanced by new contributions from a number of young, but distinguished co-authors, as well as a co-editor. Together,they have taken the book to a new level, incorporating both clinical findings and the results of both new and old imaging and electrophysiologic testing. This new edition sparkles in its presentations, explanations, and superb illustrations. It is truly a piece de resistance of which the authorsshould be exceedingly proud." --Neil R. Miller, MD, FACS, Wilmer Eye Institute, John Hopkins Hospital
