Principles and Practice of Clinical Electrophysiology of Vision, 2nd Edition
Edited by John R. Heckenlively and Geoffrey B. Arden

This authoritative text is the only comprehensive reference available on electrophysiologic vision testing, offering both practical information on techniques and problems as well as basic physiology and anatomy, theoretical concepts, and clinical correlations. The second edition of the widely used text offers extensive new material and updated information: 65 of the 84 chapters are completely new, with the changes reflecting recent advances in the field.

John R. Heckenlively is Paul R. Lichter Professor of Ophthalmic Genetics and Professor of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences at the University of Michigan Kellogg Eye Center in Ann Arbor.
