Clinical Pathways in Neuro-Ophthalmology: An Evidence-Based Approach, 2nd Edition – Andrew G. Lee

The primary goal of this book is to provide the reader with an easy-to-follow, heavily referenced guide to the management of common neuro-ophthalmologic conditions. We have specifically chosen to focus on recent (1990 to 2002) references, and we emphasize the best available clinical evidence. To this end, we have not included letters or case reports unless they add significant new information. We include pre-1990 references only if they are of historical significance. We have tried to be inclusive, however, in the construction of our tables and charts, and provide the references as needed. The secondary goal of this book is to discuss and classify the available clinical evidence concerning the evaluation and treatment of various neuro-ophthalmologic processes and grade the strength of any recommendations that are made. Readers will have to judge for themselves which is the best approach for the individual patient; the authors emphasize that these guidelines are not meant to define any particular standard of care for these conditions.
