Shields Textbook of Glaucoma returns for its sixth edition—and its second in the capable hands of R. Rand Allingham as senior author. Some decades back, this was a mainstay reference for all glaucoma topics, possibly overshadowed only by Chandler and Grant. Readers with a working knowledge of the earlier editions were on solid ground at both the slit lamp and the operating microscope. This edition continues that honorable tradition, and the authors have provided a solid, well-referenced, easy-to-use resource covering the myriad complexities of the management of intraocular pressure in children and adults.
