This engaging book gives the reader a new perspective on the concepts behind glaucoma, namely, Flammer’s concept of the role of ocular blood flow in glaucoma
Summarizes the knowledge based on Prof. Flammer’s vast research findings and evidence-based clinical experience
Lavishly illustrated and simple format; also includes areas that may be overlooked in the management of glaucoma and stimulates the readers to think about glaucoma from a new perspective
It has been suspected since more than a century that disturbed ocular blood flow (OBF) may play a role in the pathogenesis of glaucoma. Reduced OBF has been measured in glaucoma patients by numberless centres with different techniques in different tissues of the eye. And reduced OBF has been proven to be of prognostic value. Nevertheless the implementation of this knowledge into clinical practice has been very slow.
This practical book will help many ophthalmologists to better understand glaucoma. The reading of this book will not only improve patient care but also give the reader intellectual satisfaction.
