Are you looking for concise, practical answers to those questions that are often left unanswered by traditional glaucoma references? Are you seeking brief, evidence-based advice for common clinical dilemmas? Curbside Consultation in Glaucoma: 49 Clinical Questions provides quick and direct answers to the thorny questions most commonly posed during a “curbside consultation” between glaucoma specialists.

Dr. Dale K. Heuer, and associate editors Dr. Steven J. Gedde and Dr. Richard Lewis, have designed this unique reference in which top glaucoma specialists offer expert advice, preferences, and opinions on tough clinical questions commonly associated with the day-to-day diagnosis and care of glaucoma patients. The unique Q&A format provides quick access to current information related to glaucoma with the simplicity of a conversation between two colleagues. Numerous images, diagrams, and references are included to enhance the text and to illustrate glaucoma pearls.

Curbside Consultation in Glaucoma: 49 Clinical Questions provides information basic enough for residents while also incorporating expert pearls that even high-volume glaucoma specialists will appreciate. General practitioners, residents, fellows, and optometrists alike will benefit from the user-friendly and casual format and the expert advice contained within.

Some of the questions that are answered:
• Which imagining device should I use in my practice?
• How should I set a target intraocular pressure?
• What is “maximum medical therapy” for glaucoma now?
• Which glaucoma medications may be used safely during pregnancy? In children?
• Is selective laser trabeculoplasty better than argon or diode laser trabeculoplasty?
• Which of the new incisional surgical alternatives to trabeculectomy should I consider for my patients? In what clinical settings should I consider them?
• In which patients with glaucoma and cataract should I perform a combined procedure? Cataract surgery alone? Trabeculectomy first?

Features: This book addresses landmark glaucoma studies that have been used as treatment guidelines. Diagnostic tools such as OCT, HRT, and other imaging modalities are explained in relation to their use with patients. Medical, laser, and surgical therapy are also covered, giving answers to the common questions of when to treat.

From the Publisher

"The active clinician will find the answer to most major questions that may be posed in the management of the glaucoma patient, and the usefulness of the answers is rewarding. I think the ophthalmic generalist and probably some glaucoma specialists would do well to study this book, and I recommend this approach for the next addition to the bookshelf of the active clinician."
