The Visual Field assessment is an important part of the neurologic and ophthalmologic examination. Field defects often provide key data about the localization of neurologic lesions, and their sequential assessment is critical to the management of some common ophthalmologic problems. This book is divided into two sections. The manual section discusses both clinical bedside techniques as well as the measurements requiring perimetric devices, and puts these in context with an introductory chapter on neuro-anatomy. The atlas section not only shows perimetric displays of the visual fields, but also provides a full clinical context for each case. These include the history and examination, a correlation with the findings on bedside examination of the field, images from fundus photography, fluorescein angiography, or neuroradiology, and a brief discussion of clinical points relevant to such patients and their underlying disease. This text de-mystifies the process of examining and interpreting the visual field for neurologists, and provides the larger clinical context of the field for ophthalmologists and optometrists. The text will increase the level of skill and efficiency in examining visual fields in clinical practice, and as a result will improve the care of the patient with visual problems. This reference will prove an invaluable tool for residents and clinicians in practice, including neurologists, ophthalmologists, optometrists, and ophthalmic technicians.
