This book will be widely used as a textbook for resident teaching in glaucoma. Thus, it seemed fitting to review it from two points of view: the resident's and the practitioner's.

Resident's View.  —Many ophthalmology residents search for thorough, succinct textbooks to use as their initial guide in the clinical evaluation and care of patients with ocular disease. The second edition of Glaucoma by Drs Chandler and Grant is just such a text. The authors and their six colleagues from the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary, Boston, have provided an overview of glaucoma that is of sufficient length to encompass almost all types of glaucoma, yet not so voluminous (just under 400 pages) to frighten off the trainee who wishes to acquire a maximum of useful knowledge in a minimum of time. The first portion of the text is an in-depth discussion of the clinical examination of patients with glaucoma.
