Description

Visual Fields via the Visual Pathwaypresents the varying visual field deficitsoccurring with lesions of the visual pathway. The book covers anatomy, pathology and signs and symptoms, plus visual field defects associated with specific parts of the visual pathway. Also covered is the basic theory of visual field assessment.

This new edition includes updated methods of visual field assessment, additional descriptions of how individual visual field results should be interpreted, an updated review of the pros and cons of the various available test programs, and recent research advances and recommendations on baseline assessment, diagnosis, and re-assessment options to promote good clinical practice decisions.

The book expands on the previous edition to considerfurther types of perimetry and also updates existingperimetry information. The Octopus 900 perimetry,introduced since the first edition, featuresalongside Goldmann and Humphrey perimeters.Artefacts of testing are discussed as well as their identification versus actual visual field deficit. A section on differential diagnosis is also included.

Chapters include numerous illustrations of visual field results, colour plates of associated fundus images, and neuroimaging scans. References and further reading lists are also provided with key articles and up-to-date literature.

Reviews

"Dr. Fiona Rowe has written a comprehensive, easy-to-read and well-illustrated text on visual fields, which will be particularly useful for trainees and practitioners across ophthalmology, orthoptics, optometry, and allied health fields in eye care."

—Prof. Jonathan M. Holmes, Professor of Ophthalmology, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota, USA

"Dr. Fiona Rowe, one of the top researchers in this field, has written a detailed and comprehensive book that I recommend to all of my students and colleagues."

—Dr. Carla Lança, Orthoptic Department, Lisbon School of Health Technology, Portugal

"This is a comprehensive reference book for anyone who wants to further their knowledge of visual fields assessment and interpretation. By providing examples and data from the most current and popular field analysers and test strategies on the market, it allows the clinician to understand and interpret the results in order to aid in a more accurate diagnosis. Every eye department would benefit from having this book on its shelves."

—Tallat Maan, Pennine Care NHS Foundation Trust, Lancashire, UK
