The optic nerve and the brain comprise the main anatomic components of neuro-ophthalmology. Although there are numerous handbooks and major texts describing all the common disorders of neuro-ophthalmology, Optic Nerve Disorders is the only practical reference book focusing only on common optic nerve : Paperback.

Optic Nerve Disorders: Diagnosis and Management, Second Edition, is a thoroughly revised and updated reference, including new information on diagnostic techniques such as genetic testing for hereditary optic neuropathies, new data on toxic/drug-related optic neuropathies and recent data from clinical trial studies.

Additional novel therapies, including stem cell therapies, the use of Author: Jane W. Chan. Optic Nerve Disorders (American Optic Nerve Disorders book of Ophthalmology Monograph Series) Out of Print--Limited Availability.

This handy, comprehensive reference covers diagnosis and management of numerous optic nerve disorders, including the major anatomic aspects at both a macroscopic and a microscopic : Paperback.

Although there are numerous handbooks and major texts describing all the common disorders of neuro-ophthalmology, OPTIC NERVE DISORDERS provides a practical reference book focusing only on common optic nerve disorders.

The optic nerve is a primary reference for those ophthalmologists and researchers interested in its anatomy and physiology, in the most recent diagnostic techniques, as well as in the clinical management of optic nerve disorders. The book provides a detailed description of the structure and functioning of the optic nerve and attempts at clarifying how anomalies in its development are related with tumor.

The anatomy of optic nerve and the visual pathways. The visual pathway begins from the globes and extends to the visual cortex in the occipital lobe [].The optic nerve (cranial nerve II) leaves the orbit; it reaches to the optic chiasm, which is located besides the pituitary gland.

ISBN: OCLC Number: Description: x, pages: illustrations (some color) ; 29 cm: Contents: Part 1 The optic nerve - anatomy and physiology: topographic anatomy, clinical correlation - optic nerve sheath decompression; intraocular optic nerve; intraorbital optic nerve; intracanalicular optic nerve; intracranial optic nerve; blood supply; myelination.

The short intraocular course of the optic nerve is often referred to as the optic nerve head, and the portion that can be seen with the ophthalmoscope is called the optic optic disc is usually oval, measuring about by mm, with its long axis typically oriented vertically.

Optic nerve hypoplasia is the most common congenital disc anomaly observed in the pediatric ophthalmology setting. It is an outcome of errors in early intrauterine fetal development, in which abnormal pruning and/or migration of retinal ganglion axons result in a reduction in the total number of axons within the optic nerve.

This book presents the salient features of optic nerve disorders, enc- passing optic neuritis, papilledema, ischemic optic neuropathies, c- pressive and in. ltrative optic neuropathies, traumatic optic neuropathies, nutritional and toxic optic neuropathies, hereditary optic neuropathies, and optic disc tumors.

Chapters 1 to 9 outline key clinical aspects of each of these disorders. This is the first practical reference book focusing only on common optic nerve disorders. The author discusses diagnosis, pathophysiology, management, and prognosis of complex optic nerve disorders.

The book is organized by optic nerve diagnoses commonly encountered in a. In this book, the commonly (typically) noticed changes in the visual field of patients with visual pathway disorders are mainly described in the chapter one titled as “Visual Field-related Anatomy of Visual Pathway” and chapter two titled as “Interpretation of Visual Field Test”, while the majority of the cases presented with "atypical.

The optic nerve, also known as cranial nerve II, or simply as CN II, is a paired cranial nerve that transmits visual information from the retina to the humans, the optic nerve is derived from optic stalks during the seventh week of development and is composed of retinal ganglion cell axons and glial cells; it extends from the optic disc to the optic chiasma and continues as the optic.

Other tests to diagnose optic neuritis might include: Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). An MRI scan uses a magnetic field and pulses of radio wave energy to make pictures of your body. During an MRI to check for optic neuritis, you might receive an injection of a contrast solution to make the optic nerve and other parts of your brain more visible on the images.

The only portion of the optic nerve that is visible on examination is the site where the nerve attaches to the eye at the posterior retina (Figure 33–2).The normal nerve has a central area through which the central retinal artery travels, branching into vessels lining the inner layer of the retina.

The optic nerve is a bundle of over one million nerve fibers responsible for transmitting visual information from the retina to the brain.

While there are many ophthalmic conditions that affect optic nerve function, Optic Neuritis and Ischemic Optic Neuropathy are two of the more commonly seen disorders within an ophthalmology practice. The optic nerve head is the most anterior component of the optic nerve and corresponds to the 1 mm segment that is located within the eyeball (i.e.

the intraocular part). Historically, it was thought to be a raised entity protruding from the retinal surface and by extension, was referred to as a papilla (hence the term, papilloedema). Optic Nerve Disorders: Diagnosis and Management, Second Edition, is a thoroughly revised and updated reference, including new information on diagnostic techniques such as genetic testing for hereditary optic neuropathies, new data on toxic/drug-related optic neuropathies and recent data from clinical trial studies.
