This volume is divided into four sections. Section 1 describes the physiiology and anatomy of the aqueous pathways. Section 2 deals with primary open-angle glaucoma. Section 3 describes angle-closure glaucoma. Section 4 describes secondary glaucoma.
The book is remarkable in several respects. It combines the insights and wisdom of a seasoned clinician with an extremely thorough review of modern glaucoma literature. The extensive, well-chosen, and up-to-date references will make this book most valuable for researchers and students. No other glaucoma textbook contains a comparable bibliography. The book contains 115 illustrations that, in general, are pertinent and clear.
In many ways, this book is written more for experienced ophthalmologists than it is for novices. It often assumes the reader has some knowledge of basic glaucoma concepts. The beginning resident might be better off to first consult one of the other standard glaucoma textbooks that more clearly delineate introductory concepts of glaucoma
