Part of the new series Gems of Ophthalmology, this book provides the latest information in the diagnosis and management of glaucoma and its progressive optic neuropathy that leads to complete blindness.

The book begins with an introduction to diagnostic investigations such as gonioscopy, optic disk assessment, perimetry and ultrasound.

The following chapters provide in depth discussion on different types of glaucoma and detail on appropriate treatment modalities including medical, laser and surgical procedures.

Emphasis is placed on the role of imaging in glaucoma management, and special investigations such as ultrasound biomicroscopy and optical coherence tomography, are also covered.

This comprehensive text is further enhanced by clinical and surgical photographs.

Other topics in the series include: Diseases of the Uvea, Cornea & Sclera, and Retina.
