The editors of this book have attempted to compile "the most current information about the diagnosis and management of patients with glaucoma, especially the complicated and difficult-to-manage glaucomas," and have directed this effort toward practicing ophthalmologists and ophthalmologists in training.
This book begins with a review of excellent information about the epidemiology of glaucoma followed by a well-written and informative discussion of basics of glaucoma diagnostic evaluations. There is also a basic section on the pharmacologic management of glaucoma.
The largest section of the book consists of succinct overviews of specific secondary and difficult primary glaucomas. Included in each chapter is a decision tree for the diagnosis and management of each condition, which provides a one-glance overview of a problem and will help the practitioner stay oriented amid the details of clinical work. Chapters range in composition from fairly detailed and cleverly wrought to basic summaries.
