Overview

Chandler and Grant's Glaucoma, now in its Fifth Edition, represents a timely update to one of the field's seminal texts on the medical practice and surgical management of glaucoma. Edited by Drs. Malik Y. Kahook and Joel S. Schuman and with contributions from David L. Epstein and over 50 contributors, Chandler and Grant's Glaucoma, Fifth Edition brings together the experience of world-class glaucoma experts who belong to a long line of surgeons trained by using the teachings of the original authors of this classic work. Meticulous updating from the previous edition maintains the well- established historical teachings of Drs. Paul A. Chandler and Morton W. Grant and defines this new Fifth Edition as the most relevant and invaluable reference on the topic of glaucoma. Exploring subject areas from the mechanisms behind clinical observation to the details on treating the individual patient in the office, Chandler and Grant's Glaucoma, Fifth Edition brings together the experience of world-class glaucoma experts trained from the original teachings of this book. New topics and features in the Fifth Edition:
• Advances in imaging of the optic nerve and retina
• Updates on medical therapy of glaucoma
• New approaches for minimally invasive glaucoma surgery
• Over 400 images and tables Chandler and Grant's Glaucoma has been an invaluable reference for the medical and surgical management of glaucoma for generations of ophthalmologists. This updated Fifth Edition builds on the teachings of previous editions, while expanding on new knowledge, making the Fifth Edition as relevant in the 21st century as when the first lectures were presented by Drs. Chandler and Grant.

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Christopher B Chambers, M.D.(Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine)
Description: This is a much-needed update of the 1997 edition of a comprehensive discourse on the medical and surgical treatment of glaucoma.
Purpose: The purpose is to present an updated, comprehensive review of the glaucomas. Carrying on Dr. Chandler's and Dr. Grant's original mission of 1986, the new editors, Dr. Kahook and Dr. Schumann, have met their objective.
Audience: It is geared primarily for comprehensive ophthalmologists, possibly glaucoma specialists, and residents and fellows.
Features: The book covers the basic anatomy and physiology of glaucoma, medications, laser procedures, surgical interventions, various types of open-angle, closed-angle, combined, and secondary glaucomas, including pediatric. One of the more innovative aspects of the book is the use of case presentations at the end of many chapters from the authors' own patient vignettes, demonstrating how they applied the information they present in the book to actual practice. Another highlight is the use of special red textboxes featuring unique and important issues that do not easily fit into a typical chapter, such as "How to Handle Mitomycin-C." A primary shortcoming is the omission of some of the more recent clinical trials. For instance, the 2012 Low Tension Glaucoma Treatment Study results on the use of brimonidine are conspicuously missing from the chapter on low tension glaucoma.
Assessment: Already one of my personal favorites, this is my go-to reference when teaching residents and medical students. Since glaucoma knowledge has advanced tremendously since the 1997 edition (i.e., movement from limbus to fornix-based conjunctival flaps, use of anti-VEGF therapy for NVG), this updated edition is much appreciated.
