The rational management of idiopathic intracranial hypertension.
A neurologist and an ophthalmologist working together provide the evidence on which to base rational decisions in the care of the patient with idiopathic intracranial hypertension. Expand
How to measure the relative afferent pupillary defect.
The numerous problems encountered in measuring the pupil are considered, and a measurement technique using neutral density filters with the swinging light test is described and illustrated. Expand
Functional visual loss. Follow-up of 42 cases.
Patients who had other types of visual field loss or loss of visual acuity were more likely to have these signs resolve than were patients with constricted or spiral fields, and treatment did not substantially alter the course. Expand
Oculomotor paresis with cyclic spasms. A critical review of the literature and a new case.
A new theory is proposed which can account for all features of the syndrome and is based on a quantitative analysis of a new case, and of all previously published reports. Expand
Visual loss in pseudotumor cerebri. Follow-up of 57 patients from five to 41 years and a profile of 14 patients with permanent severe visual loss.
It is believed that sequential quantitative perimetry gives more complete information and is essential to rational decision making in the treatment of pseudotumor cerebri. Expand
The prevalence of simple anisocoria.
The prevalence of anisocoria did not vary with the time of day, from day to day, or from week to week, nor was it influenced by the sex, age, or iris color of the subject. Expand
Functional visual loss: I. A true psychiatric disorder?
A review of the literature describing patients with functional visual loss reveals that a significant proportion of them do not manifest psychiatric disease as defined by current nomenclature.Expand
The diagnosis and prognosis of atypical carotid-cavernous fistula (red-eyed shunt syndrome).
Nineteen patients who complained of red eyes had the characteristic clinical signs of an atypical carotid-cavernous fistula, and the serious complication of the fistulas was open-angle glaucoma resulting from the high episcleral venous pressure. Expand

Patients with Adie's syndrome had an accommodative paresis at the time of onset, and the muscle stretch reflexes in the arms were just as frequently imparied as those in th elegs, but the degree of impariment tended to be more severe in the ankles and triceps. Expand
Critical evaluation of the cocaine test in the diagnosis of Horner's syndrome.
It is found that simply measuring the postcocaine anisocoria provided a better prediction of Horner's syndrome than taking the trouble to calculate the net change in anisOCoria. Expand
