    Neuro-ophthalmology is a merged subspecialty of neurology and ophthalmology dealing with complex multisystem diseases presenting with visual manifestations. This book helps the reader in recognizing, approaching, and managing such a patient. It covers the afferent and efferent systems, pupillary disorders, and Radiology of neuro-ophthalmic conditions. It features individual symptomatology with salient points, their management and differential diagnosis. It has case scenarios, key points, and algorithms along with self-assessment MCQ questions. Its simplified, step wise approach will be a useful resource for neurologists, ophthalmologists, physicians, pediatricians, and optometrists.

    Key Features
    • Features a simplified and stepwise clinical approach to neuro-ophthalmic disorders.
    • Includes case studies and clinical pearls along with self-assessment sections.
    • Covers to the point and crisp analysis of common complaints faced in neuro-ophthalmology.

He is currently Professor and Head of the department of Neurology at PGIMER, Chandigarh, India. He also served as Dean of Baba Farid University of Health Sciences (BFUHS), Punjab, India. He is a member of editorial team of Neuro-Ophthalmology, Annals of Indian Academy of Neurology and Indian edition of European journal of Neurology. He is a fellow of Royal College of Physicians (FRCP), Edinburgh and Fellow Indian academy of Neurology (FIAN). He is also the chairman of Neuro-Ophthalmology subsection of the Indian Academy of Neurology.

    His major areas of interest are Neuro-Ophthalmology, Neuroimmunology and Headache. He has been instrumental in introducing the concept of systematic Neuro-Ophthalmology in India. He runs a Neuro-Ophthalmology sub-specialty clinic catering to the patients from all over India.

    This book is an excellent resource for healthcare professionals who treat neurophthalmological conditions. In a complex field that has been lacking pragmatic resources, this title stands out as it offers up-to-date information
    using a practical approach. While other books are available in the field, this particular title distinguishes itself through its currency and emphasis on practicality.
