Product Description


In its clarity and completeness of presentation, upon a quick read of the entire monograph one might get the notion that eye movement analysis is straight forward with mastery readily within reach. But then with close attention to the full presentation, the reader is guided through the complexity of what is hands down the most intricate and potentially informative access that the clinician may have to the workings of a large block of neurological disease. (Verne Caviness, M.D., D.Phil (Oxon))

This is a very useful book and unique in the sense that it has a lot of information, rarely found elsewhere, on the role and influence of the brain and the nerves on eye movement disorders. (BizIndia)

An outstanding combination of clinical wisdom, wonderful cases including videos, and clear exposition of the underlying anatomy, physiology and pathology. It is at the top of my list of books to recommend to ophthalmologists and neurologists both “trained” and trainees.

Superb neuro-ophthalmology textbook 3 Jun 2014
By Ivana Vodopivec - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
"Eye Movement Disorders in Clinical Practice” is an indispensable book for anyone interested in neurology and neuro-ophthalmology, including students, residents and practicing clinicians. It wonderfully embodies decades of clinical experience, and as such provides a unique approach to the most challenging topics in modern neurology and neuro-ophthalmology. The book very effectively derives clinical reasoning and practical approach from anatomy, physiology, pathophysiology and neuropathology.

The highlight of the book are color photographs and multicolored illustrations depicting examination techniques, exam findings and signs, as well as modern imaging techniques which enhance the comprehension of each topic. In addition, each chapter is accompanied by several cases which capture the most important practical points.

The interplay between the fundamental sciences, examination technique skills, diagnostic studies and therapeutic management create a state-of-the-art reference book. Being a Neurology resident myself, still learning and building my own clinical skills of eliciting a history of symptoms and recognizing abnormalities on physical examination, I consider Dr. Wray’s text my go-to reference for any eye movement disorder.

By Deborah Langston - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This spectacular book is the gold standard not just of Neuro-ophthalmology but contributes immensely to the entire field of Neurology itself. It is beautifully and clearly written, organized, and unbelievably well-illustrated with classic and often sequential photographs with associated clinical histories and management.
In addition, there is a DVD included with the book version showing 54 video clips of the cases in the book showing a wide variety of eye movement disorders in diseases of the CNS.
Dr. Wray's voice-over with each case clearly reveals the author's keen diagnostic and well-articulated skills (in a lovely English accent). Many of these filmed cases span not just years but, in a number of instances, decades. This is indeed one of the many unique aspects of this fine book.
Just be warned (from my personal experience with Eye Movement Disorders) once you pick it up to read for "a few minutes" you may well find yourself still turning its pages an hour or two later.
With reference to the disappointed Kindle buyers who gave this book an undeserved one star - Kindle technology cannot transmit videos from a DVD included with a book.
Professor Wray is to be congratulated on her outstanding contribution to the field of Neurology.

and so I’d like to join the choir of neurologists who have offered ... 5 Sep 2014
By Mykol Larvie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
My perspective is different from the authors and the other reviewers here. I’m a neuroradiologist and am more commonly approaching clinical cases from a perspective that is precisely the opposite of the usual clinical encounter – I see the imaging results first, often without a clear understanding of the patient’s symptoms and signs. It turns out that this book is nevertheless perfectly suited to my needs, and so I’d like to join the choir of neurologists who have offered their reviews and add my voice in praise of this work.

The imaging presented in this volume is outstanding, and includes typical examples a well as interesting variants. Some of the images are absolutely stunning – there is a case of Wernicke’s encephalopathy that exceeds any example I’ve ever seen, from a patient with a confluence of pathological processes.

Perhaps more than the medical imaging, I find the clinical descriptions, schematic diagrams of anatomic circuits and pathways, and patient photographs to be especially helpful for my purposes of understanding the consequences of lesions. Additionally, there are numerous lists and outlines that efficiently summarize the major elements of the conditions under discussion. The Special Explanatory Notes add fascinating details and often constitute essentially complete and quite engaging case reports.

It’s to be expected, although maybe a bit unfortunate, that this work will appeal primarily to subspecialists whose work requires understanding of neuro-ophthalmology, and I’d like to emphasize that this should include many radiologists. Still, I can’t finish this review without mentioning that this book is a lot of fun. The (relative) simplicity with which Prof. Wray presents complex subjects, combined with the fascinating nature of the material (eyes that move in funny directions!) make this a compelling read. And, should the reader’s vision begin to lose sharp focus, the accompanying DVD has fabulous material as well.

A recent clinical case compelled me to look at the example of opsoclonus presented on the DVD. A patient with a paraneoplastic disorder was presented, first in extremis with severe opsoclonus, and in short term follow-up at which point she was significantly improved. The physician narrative demonstrated the findings and guided the patient through dramatic demonstration of the disorder. It’s amazing material.

This book is an obvious labor of love from a master of her field. It brings to mind a few other classics in the contemporary scientific literature: Albert Rhoton’s “Anatomy”, Halliday and Resnick’s “Physics”, even Ed Wilson’s “Sociobiology”. It’s the kind of book that gets read, and then re-read. I’m looking forward to it, again.
A must read for Neurologists, Neuroophthalmologists and Ophthalmlogists 8 Sep 2014

This book is beautifully written and well thought of in terms of helping the reader fully understand the complexity of neurology and neuro-ophthalmology, specifically eye signs. Ophthalmologists, neurologists, and even medical students I believe will benefit from this learning tool as the author explains carefully and integrates it with her videos. Dr. Shirley Wray's long clinical experience in the field of neuro-ophthalmology at the Massachussetts General Hospital, Neuro-Visual Disorder unit has been poured into this book no holds barred. I highly recommend this to anyone interested in the medical field of Neurology and Neuro-Ophthalmology.
Gem of Rigorous Clinical Logic ... Beautifully Complimented by Exceptional Video Atlas 22 Sep 2014
By Benjamin I Rapoport MD PhD - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Wray has for many years been well known as a master of clinical neurology at Massachusetts General Hospital, and in this concise volume she systematically condenses a wealth of insights from her career in neuro-ophthalmology. The book is a gem of clarity and rigorous clinical logic, and it is beautifully complimented by an exceptional video atlas of clinical cases that Wray has collected and annotated over the course of her career. The entire work will be of enduring and practical use to neurologists, neurosurgeons, and others who rely on observations of eye movement in assessing the functioning brain.
