Manual of Glaucoma is a comprehensive reference guide to the basics, diagnosis and new surgical possibilities for the treatment of glaucoma.

This book is divided into 44 chapters across six sections covering fundamentals, diagnosis, open angle glaucoma, angle closure glaucoma, childhood glaucoma, and a final section on new techniques for managing glaucoma. Beginning with the anatomy of the optic nerve head, and the pathophysiology and classification of glaucoma, subsequent chapters cover methods of diagnosis such as Gonioscopy and OCT, variations of glaucoma such as pigmentary glaucoma and malignant glaucoma, and congenital and developmental glaucoma in children.

Manual of Glaucoma also includes a separate chapter on complementary and alternative therapies, as well as new surgical modalities, wound healing techniques and postoperative care. Enhanced by 236 full colour images and illustrations, Manual of Glaucoma is an essential source of reference for ophthalmologists and ophthalmology residents.
