Emory Eye Center Physicians Win Prestigious Book Award

(ATLANTA) Emory Eye Center physicians Valerie Biousse, MD, and Nancy Newman, MD, were awarded first prize in the neurology category of the 2016 British Medical Association (BMA) book awards. Their book, Neuro-Ophthalmology Illustrated, Second Edition, is an up-to-date, beautifully illustrated guide to help readers recognize a patient's signs and symptoms, localize pathology, develop a differential diagnosis and select a management strategy.

Dr. Biousse and Dr. Newman are two of the most prominent neuro-ophthalmologists in the world, with a combined 40 years of teaching experience. They treat patients at The Emory Eye Center in Atlanta as well as teach ophthalmology and neurology students at Emory University School of Medicine.

This second edition of Neuro-Ophthalmology Illustrated is a handy reference for ophthalmologists, neurologists and neurosurgeons as well as a valuable resource for residents preparing to take board examinations in these specialties.

The BMA medical book awards are held each year to recognize outstanding contributions in medical literature. Prizes are awarded in 20 categories. This year's contest included almost 700 entries across all categories.

With programs in cornea, retina (surgical and medical), glaucoma, neuro-ophthalmology, oculoplastics, ophthalmic pathology and pediatric ophthalmology, Emory has long been one of the most sought-after training programs for ophthalmology subspecialties. Innovative treatments, groundbreaking research and personalized care have earned the Eye Center the respect of patients and providers alike.
