About this book

This book illustrates effective surgical techniques for treating glaucoma in a practical and easy to follow format. Within the various chapters the different steps for all surgical procedures are clearly described  to guide the reader through each clinical presentation. There are many drawings with detailed explanations regarding incisional surgical techniques such as trabeculectomy, shunts and non perforating techniques, canaloplasty and modern Microinvasive Glaucoma Surgeries (MIGSs).

Surgical anatomy, different anesthetic techniques, medical therapy, laser treatments and choice of treatment to contrast glaucoma are also explained throughout the book. Finally there are three chapters on the most modern and effective surgical procedures, drawn up by leading internationally renowned ophthalmologists. This book will be an essential clinical resource for a wide range of readers including ophthalmologists in training, experienced surgeons and glaucoma specialists.

Reviews

“This is a full color operative atlas on Glaucoma Surgery with an emphasis on technique. The pathophysiology and causes of glaucoma are well described. The use of stents and other devices is the major point in this step by step account of acute, chronic, closed angle and open angle disease. … The role of medications is discussed. This is a good book on the techniques currently available.” (Joseph Grenier, Amazon.com, April, 2018)
