9780071604611: Visual Perception:  A Clinical Orientation, Fourth Edition

The text that bridges the gap between basic visual science and clinical application – now in full color

Includes 3 complete practice exams!

A Doody's Core Title for 2011!

This comprehensive text on visual science is unique in that it highlights the fundamental aspects of monocular visual perception that are necessary to successful clinical practice. Recognized for its engaging, enjoyable style and ability to explain difficult topics in simple, easy-to-understand terms, Visual Perception goes well beyond the basics, including information from anatomy to perception.

Covering a broad range of clinically-relevant topics, including color vision and its defects, spatial vision, temporal aspects of vision, psychophysics, physiology, and development and aging, the Fourth Edition of Visual Perception has been updated to include full-color figures and many new clinical images. Each chapter has been revised to keep up with the latest advances in the basic sciences, and throughout the text the linkage between basic psychophysics and clinical practice has been strengthened.

Features

  • New full-color presentation with 250 illustrations, including color vision tests and fundus photographs
  • 3 practice exams (more than 200 multiple-choice questions)
  • Self-assessment questions at the end of each chapter
  • Current references from leaders in each subfield

From the Publisher:


  • 'Over 300 illustrations and examples designed to 'demystify' the subject of visual perception

    'Easy to read and understand

    'Excellent aide for national board preparation

    'Affordable

    'Brings clinical relevance to a basic science topic

    'Make more clinically relevant by including actual patient
    cases throughout the book (i.e. problem with depth perception, impaired vision as a result of retina problems)

    'Include more original graphs and illustrations for greater content clarity

    'Expansion of the self-assessment questions at the end of each chapter
  • From the Back Cover:

    From reviews of the first and second editions:
    "Read Visual Perception by Steven Schwartz, OD… a great tool for preparing for the boards… easy to read…. These topics are particularly tough…. Schwartz does a good job of explaining them in a concise manner… many successful Berkeley test-takers swear by this book!"
    —The Berkeley Guide 2002

    "The author is… extremely qualified to write from a perspective combining basic vision science with clinical applications…. An excellent textbook for classes on visual perception for ophthalmologic clinicians... a detailed account of current methods in the assessment of the visual system, and... very enjoyable reading."
    Janet P. Szlyk, PhD
    —4 stars from Doody's Health Science Book Review Journal

    "…an approachable introduction to the psychology and physiology of visual perception…. Schwartz’s style is clear and explanatory… avoids confusing or unsupported statements and unnecessary mathematics."
    Michael Harrad, MRCP, FRCOphth
    —Perception

    This leading text provides a solid foundation for courses in visual perception. Featuring hundreds of drawings and photos, it covers the mechanisms and assessment of visual perception for ophthalmologic clinicians and psychologists, in reader-friendly fashion.
