SUMMARY

Although the visual field provides clinicians with important diagnostic information for many neurologic and ophthalmologic conditions, its evaluation is often perceived as difficult or mysterious. In Field of Vision: A Manual and Atlas of Perimetry, neuro-ophthalmologist Jason J.S. Barton, MD, PhD, and neurologist Michael Benatar, MBChB, DPhil, provide a comprehensive overview of the use of both perimetric devices and bedside testing, and how to interpret the results. The authors focus on the clinically relevant points, providing enough technical detail and anatomic knowledge for the physician to competently examine patients with a perimeter. To develop the clinician's skill in interpretation, the authors include an atlas of 100 real-life cases arranged in anatomic order from retina to striate cortex. Each case contains a brief clinical vignette, a visual field, and a description of the field and its causal lesion, most with photographs of the pathology. The accompanying discussion addresses the nuances of the field and considers some of the clinical issues relevant to each case. An additional quiz section of 20 randomly arranged visual fields provides readers with an opportunity to test newly acquired skills in detecting the abnormalities, describing them, localizing them, and making a reasonable guess at their pathology. Simply written and clinically focused, Field of Vision: A Manual and Atlas of Perimetry brings together in an accessible format the specialist knowledge and skills needed by today's clinicians to successfully measure and interpret the visual fields of patients
