With an abundance of excellent glaucoma texts already on the market,
Dr Sassani takes on the difficult task of assembling another that will make
an impact. Ophthalmic Fundamentals: Glaucoma is a
project that takes the expertise of several highly experienced glaucomatologists
and provides a nice summary of several, but not all, aspects of the subspecialty.
It is predominantly a book for clinicians that is appropriate reading for
both ophthalmologists in training and general eye care practitioners.
