Optic neuritis.- Screening for NMO in optic neuritis.- Medical treatment of Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension (IIH).- Treatment of Non-arteritic anterior ischemic optic neuropathy (NAION).- Treatment of Giant Cell Arteritis.- Neuroimaging for isolated sixth nerve cranial neuropathy.- Cerebral venous sinus stenting for Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension (IIH).- CSF shunt vs optic nerve sheath fenestration for IIH.- Treatment of central retinal artery occlusion.- Pharmacologic pupil testing and imaging for Horner syndrome.- Imaging for third nerve palsy.- Treatment of traumatic optic neuropathy.- Work up for optic atrophy.- Treatment of Leber hereditary optic neuropathy (LHON).
This book offers an overview on the most recent advances in global neuro-opthalmic care. Global variation in the incidence and prevalence of specific neuro-ophthalmic conditions results in geographic differences in differential diagnosis, evaluation, management, and treatment of specific disorders. It covers a variety of disorders from optic neuritis, idiopathic intracranial hypertension to traumatic optic neuropathy. To understand the key differences in neuro-ophthalmic health care, this book has gathered recognized experts from around the world to describe and define these regional and geographic variations of care.
By highlighting various international approaches to diagnosing and treating neuro-ophthalmic disorders, this book will be an essential guide for neuro-ophthalmologists, ophthalmologists, and neurologists seeking to build upon their clinical skills in a global context.
