Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Camille M Hylton, MD (Johns Hopkins Wilmer Eye Institute)
Description: This delightful book summarizes the essential features of glaucoma required for accurate diagnosis and therapy. The chapters, provided by various glaucoma specialists, are organized into five major sections which address the key elements to consider in the care of glaucoma patients.
Purpose: The author's objective is to provide a more simplified format for identifying and managing issues that pertain to the care of patients with glaucoma. The author has succeeded in meeting this worthy objective.
Audience: According to the author, the book is written to aid in the "everyday care of glaucoma patients." The book's content is appropriate for a variety of physicians, including general ophthalmologists, glaucoma specialists, and ophthalmology residents. The author is a credible authority.
Features: The book covers the key concepts required to understand the basic pathophysiology and clinical signs of glaucoma. The methods for diagnosis and treatment are also discussed at length. The clinical features required to diagnosis specific types of glaucoma are well covered. The portion of the chapter on ALT could be improved by the addition of a short discussion of SLT. Moreover, this discussion would be more appropriately included in the section on therapeutic signs. There is little discussion of the use of laser iridectomy in primary angle-closure glaucoma.
Assessment: This book is a useful tool for approaching the complex issues that arise in caring for patients with glaucoma. The organization of the chapters is helpful in simplifying the thought process involved in making management decisions.
