According to the new statistics of the World Health Organization (WHO) Glaucoma is the second important cause of blindness as the world's population ages. This concise guide describes the state of the art glaucoma surgery as performed by leading glaucoma surgeons. Written with a reader-friendly and homogenous structure, each chapter starts with key tips, offering advice on pre-operative considerations and step-by-step guidance for all surgical procedures. It also includes tips on how to avoid complications as well as the management of post-operative complications. A notable feature of this text is the companion DVD featuring videos of the most important surgeries and selected complications. Readers will be able to see the experts perform routine cases, and watch as they react to the unexpected events that glaucoma surgery may bring.
The straightforward approach, ample illustrations, and detailed suggestions for avoiding complications make this text useful for all physicians currently performing glaucoma surgery, from general ophthalmologists to fellows and established glaucomatologists.

Glaucoma Medical Therapy: Principles and Management (Ophthalmology Monographs) Glaucoma medical therapy has evolved with the advent of each new drug. This evolution has moved quickly and generated new information that clinicians need to understand, synthesize, and implement about medications that have specific benefits and risks for their glaucoma patients. This book aims to provide clinicians with an accessible guide to the current art and science of using clinically available drugs for the medical therapy of glaucoma. The contributors have attempted to present evidence-based information, while providing perspective from their clinical experience. In order to reflect the extensive changes that have occurred since the publication of the first edition in 1999, new chapters have been added about fixed combination drugs and the medical treatment of pediatric patients, and existing chapters have been thoroughly revised and updated. Glaucoma Medical Therapy will be a valuable reference for ophthalmologists in both practice and training, as well as for other practitioners who have clinical contact with glaucoma patients.
