Reviews

From the reviews:

"It is a comprehensive presentation of the diagnosis, treatment, and pathology of the various causes of glaucoma in children. … This work is intended for ophthalmologists who care for children with glaucoma. Its detailed figures and descriptions of surgical techniques make it ideal for glaucoma surgeons in training as well as practicing glaucoma specialists. … This book provides a unique and authoritative discussion of the diagnosis and surgical treatment of pediatric glaucoma." (Monte Dean Mills, Doody’s Review Service, May, 2009)

“This hard-cover book … is divided into 28 chapters on different aspects of congenital glaucoma for specialists and residents. … The book is full of images, which makes it user-friendly… . All in all I would recommend this book, which is certainly a good asset for every glaucoma specialist to have as a reference.” (Michele Iester, Graefe’s Archive for Clinical and Experimental Ophthalmology, Vol. 248, 2010)

“Pediatric glaucomas is probably the most interesting and in-depth books on this topic I have ever read. … I highly recommend Pedriatic glaucoma. Besides being a valuable tool for ophthalmologists that deal with this fascinating and difficult topic, this book is surely beneficial for all doctors in search of greater knowledge beyond our modern technological world, which often causes us to forget about the ethical, humane, and non instrumental aspects of our day-to-day clinical work.”­­­ (Paolo Brusini, European Journal of Ophthalmology, 2011)
