Glaucoma is not a single disease that responds to a single treatment. A range of clinical entities is involved, including both ocular and systemic conditions. Glaucoma is difficult to diagnose, and that makes its treatment even more difficult. In this volume, the authors attempt to alleviate confusion about glaucoma. They have written a clear and concise guide to the effective diagnosis and treatment of this not-so-simple disease. Beginning with a full classification and profile and ending with an overview of treatment options, Handbook of Glaucoma distills much of the medical literature into one straightforward reference. This guide is ideal for ophthalmologists, eye surgeons, geriatricians and any clinician attending to glaucoma patients.
