About this book

This detailed volume introduces the reader to current methods in glaucoma research, in particular those that make use of animal disease models. Given that the retinal ganglion cells damaged and destroyed by glaucoma do not regenerate after lowering the intraocular pressure, new therapeutic approaches that protect ganglion cells directly is a vital research goal that this volume’s contents aim to aid scientists in developing. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series format, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls. 
Authoritative and practical, Glaucoma: Methods and Protocols serves as a useful guide for both ophthalmologists in clinical practice and researchers in the field.
