Overview

In recent years, a large number of drugs have been developed for the treatment of glaucoma. The clinical use of drugs for glaucoma therapy has evolved, adapting with the advent of each new drug. Clinicians need to understand, synthesize, and use data about medications that have specific benefits and risks for their glaucoma patients. The focus of this book is the current art and science of clinically available drugs for medical therapy of glaucoma. The contributors have attempted to provide evidence-based information about the topic, while providing perspective from clinical experience. The book is intended to provide information about glaucoma medical therapy for practicing ophthalmologists and ophthalmologists in training. Other practitioners who have clinical contact with glaucoma patients also may find the content of this monograph valuable. In the second edition of this book, all chapters have been thoroughly revised and updated, and new chapters regarding fixed combination drugs and medical treatment of pediatric patients have been added. Some chapters have required addition of extensive new material because of the changes in medical therapy of glaucoma since the publication of the first edition of the book in 1999.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Prithvi S. Sankar, MD (University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine)
Description: This book describes the principles and management of the medical treatment of glaucoma, detailing each class of glaucoma drugs, their mechanisms, side effects, and limitations.
Purpose: The purpose, to provide information about glaucoma medical therapy for practicing ophthalmologists and ophthalmologists in training, is a worthy one, since glaucoma is still managed principally through medical therapy. Fortunately, the book delivers accurate and complete information about medications used to treat glaucoma.
Audience: By including numerous scientific references and by having various leaders in glaucoma author each section, the book provides ample information to educate practicing ophthalmologists and ophthalmologists in training.
Features: The main focus of the book is on the classes of glaucoma medications, but it also covers ocular pharmacology, combination medications, systemic drugs and intraocular pressure, along with special areas such as medications during pregnancy and in pediatrics. The authors do not limit themselves to drugs approved for use in the United States; they also cover medications available worldwide. Although the book does not break any new ground, it does provide a complete and thorough description of the current thinking on the medical management of glaucoma.
Assessment: The medical management of glaucoma is continually changing. The advent of newer medications over the last few years has made the treatment of glaucoma more efficacious and better tolerated, resulting in fewer side effects. Because of the changing landscape of glaucoma therapy, this book is valuable as a complete reference to help ophthalmologists and those in training keep up with this rapidly changing field.
