From the reviews:

“This comprehensive review of the current thinking about glaucoma and its treatment uses a layout that provides various ways for readers to learn through photographs, illustrations, tables, and sidebar essays … . It is written by a variety of authors … thus the varied audience benefits from a breadth of different perspectives on this disease. … This book discusses new viewpoints, some controversial, regarding diagnosis and management of glaucoma. … this is a useful tool for the targeted audience on the latest thinking about glaucoma.” (Asha Yancy Okorie, Doody’s Review Service, August, 2010)

“This comprehensive book serves as a relatively concise, yet complete, resource for the academic and clinical study of glaucoma diagnosis and management in the new healthcare era. … It is intended for general eye care providers … general ophthalmologists, optometrists, and resident physicians in both academic and community practices. … All aspects of glaucoma care are well discussed, including several topics which are not included in current textbooks … . The editors should be commended for their valuable contribution to the glaucoma literature.” (Ahmad A. Aref, Doody’s Review Service, January, 2011)
