Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: John W. Chandler, MD, FACS (University of Washington School of Medicine)
Description: The second edition covers the clinical aspects of glaucoma and updates the first edition published in 1989.
Purpose: The authors seek to provide a practical, yet detailed, book covering the diagnostic and therapeutic aspects of all types of glaucoma. This book nicely fills this important need.
Audience: The authors are educators and glaucoma experts in the United Kingdom. Their book is skillfully written for ophthalmology residents and general ophthalmologists. The superb artwork of T. Tarrant gives the book an added dimension of educational excellence.
Features: The color photographs and artwork are skillfully used in combination with concise to convey a large amount of information. Each chapter has a few pertinent references. The comprehensive index makes it easy to navigate through the book. The book attractively presents material and is laid out in a logical manner.
Assessment: This is far more than a manual. It is an effective synthesis of text and figures to provide a wealth of information regarding glaucoma. It is highly informative and enjoyable to read. This combination makes it a worthwhile addition to an ophthalmologist's library.
