The moment you start using Modern Neuro-Ophthalmology iBook, you become absorbed into a digital world filled with interactive illustrations and immersive videos. Take note of the integrated, seamless, interactive multimedia. Gone are the days of scribbling notes in the small margins of paper textbooks. Modern Neuro-Ophthalmology is clear, comprehensive, illustrative, and enjoyable to use.
Learning the practices of neuro-ophthalmology is difficult. There’s an immense amount of information to learn and synthesize about obtaining a detailed history and physical examination of a patient. Until now, textbooks relied on still figures or separate supplemental resources to describe the process, but Modern Neurology was designed to change this. With iBook at its core, you can view dozens of embedded videos, read hyperlinked abstracts for referenced articles, use the high-powered search function to locate particular text, and even get regular updates straight to your iPad. Whether you’re a dedicated neuro-ophthalmologist with specialized training, a primary care practitioner, or even a student, it’s important to have a familiarity with this examination for the sake of effective patient care.
Annotated illustrations, making difficult principles easy to understand.
Many patient videos showing effective clinical examinations.
Countless videos of exams and complaints, just press play.

We have been honing Modern Neuro-Ophthalmology for over three years to make sure we get it right. Our goal for the iBook was for it to be easy enough for students yet scholarly enough for medical professionals. With over a combined 20 years of clinical experience and a multitude of teaching awards, we think we’ve mastered it.
Dr. Prasad is the Chief of the Division of Neuro-Ophthalmology and a member of the Division of Hospital Neurology at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts. He is an Associate Professor of Neurology at Harvard Medical School. He is the Associate Program Director for the Harvard Brigham and Women’s Hospital/Massachusetts General Hospital Neurology Residency Program, which is the largest training program in the country, with 52 residents.
Dr. Prasad is a renowned teacher who has received four teaching awards, including the BWH/MGH Neurology Faculty Teacher of the Year award in both 2013 and 2014, and the Bernard Lown Award for Excellence in Teaching and Brigham and Women’s Hospital. He has served as visiting professor at numerous institutions, including the University of Pennsylvania, New York University, The University of Iowa, The University of Michigan, Indiana University, Hôpital Ophtalmique Jules-Gonin (Lausanne, Switzerland), St. Luke’s Hospital (Manila, Philippines), and the Faculté de Médicine Pierre et Marie Curie (Paris, France). He has authored over 45 peer-reviewed manuscripts and 20 review chapters. Together with Drs. Allan Ropper, Martin A. Samuels, and Joshua Klein, he is authoring the forthcoming 11th edition of “Adams and Victor’s Principles of Neurology.”
Dr. Rizzo is the David G. Cogan Professor of Ophthalmology in the Field of Neuro-Ophthalmology, and he has served as Director of the Neuro-Ophthalmology Service at the Harvard Medical School since 2006. He is based at the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary in Boston, and he serves as Director of the Fellowship training program in Neuro-Ophthalmology at Harvard Medical School.
Dr. Rizzo received a coveted Physician Scientist award from the NIH to study the human retina under the mentorship of Dr. Richard Masland. This experience led him in 1988 to establish the Boston Retinal Implant Project, which has been a multi-disciplinary research program between Harvard Medical School, Massachusettes Eye and Ear Infirmary and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Dr. Rizzo received the Bartemeus Award for leadership in the field of visual prosthetics. More recently, his technology is being modified to enable intervention at the level of the lateral geniculate nucleus to potentially help a much larger number of patients with a wider range of disease. Dr. Rizzo has founded two companies that have been dedicated to developing implantable and portable devices for the visually-impaired.
Dr. Rizzo has received two teaching awards, and he was the Director of the Neuro-Ophthalmology section at the MEEI-sponsored Lancaster Course for 25 years. Dr. Rizzo also serves as Director of the Harvard Medical School Department of Ophthalmology Alumni Association and as an Associate Editor for Investigative Ophthalmology and Visual Science. In 2013, Dr. Rizzo was recognized as a “Gold Fellow” by the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology.
Anatomy and Physiology of the Human Visual System is only our first of five volumes. We’re in the middle of creating four more iBooks to complement the Modern Ophthalmology series. And we are confident our volumes will go well with each other because they are designed together by the same people for the same people. Simply, they just work.
Anatomy and Physiology of the Human Visual System
The Neuro-Ophthalmologic History, Examination, and Diagnostic Testing
Disorders Presenting with Visual Loss and Visual Hallucinations
Disorders Presenting with Abnormal Eye Movements and Orbital Disease
Disorders of the Pupils, Eyelids, Facial Muscles, and Disorders of Head Pain
