Reviews

“Admittedly, the audience for this book will be sub-specialists. It will be glaucoma surgeons who wish to fine tune their surgical skills in order to attain the best possible results for their pediatric patients. … This is a high-quality book. For those who work with these specific and rare cases, it is sure to be a joy to read.” (Diana V. Do, Doody's Book Reviews, February, 2019)​
