This book develops the subject of glaucoma from its basic physiological and anatomical factors through the pathogenesis of its various forms into detailed discussion of surgical procedures.

It begins with a clear, concise description of the formation, flow and out-flow of aqueous along with its associated pathology of the out-flow channels. This is followed by an anatomical description of the angle of the anterior chamber and its surgical landmarks. Methods, apparatus, and various techniques of microsurgery are then detailed. Current microsurgical instruments and sutures are described, together with their use, advantages, and disadvantages. Various microsurgical procedures are then described, the variations in techniques are covered, and the methods developed by various surgeons are compared.

These chapters demonstrate the authors' familiarity and practical experience with surgical techniques in glaucoma. The book does not discuss the diagnosis of glaucoma, evaluation of the optic disc, changes in the visual fields, or medical treatment
