Gonioscopy has grown to occupy a prominent position in ophthalmology as an essential method in the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the anterior segment of the eye. The second edition of Slit-Lamp Gonioscopy deals comprehensively with the anatomy of the chamber angle, the history and technique of gonioscopy, and the interpretation of findings in glaucoma and other diseases.
