To read this book is to take the imagination on a trip to ophthalmology centers throughout the world, from Helsinki to Barcelona, Spain, from New Haven, Conn, to Tokyo, and to hear 70 of the world's experts on glaucoma report on their current projects. This experience should be rewarding for any physician who deals with glaucoma. It may be a reminder that the challenge of treating this disease is the same all over the world. It may give new perspectives on the physician's own struggles with this often intractable disease, and it may very possibly leave the unsubstantiated but irrepressible belief that ophthalmology in the home-town is not so far behind the times after all.
