This book provides a wonderful overview of glaucoma in a manageable 184 pages. The intended audience is the trainee ophthalmologist and optometrist. The book is simple enough to function as an introductory glaucoma text but is sophisticated enough for even the seasoned ophthalmologist.

This book is the third edition of this title. The authors have incorporated advances in glaucoma that have occurred since the last printing in 1997. Some of the new developments include multicenter randomized clinical trials, genetics discoveries, newer imaging techniques, selective laser trabeculoplasty, and new medications. The authors have distilled the most salient clinical points from these complex new developments.
