Glaucoma is the most common neurodegenerative disease and the second most common cause of blindness worldwide after cataract. While the diagnosis of end-stage glaucoma can be made by any physician trained in the use of the ophthalmoscope, it is preferable to diagnose glaucoma at an early stage, when intervention can alter the course of the disease and change the prognosis.
Packed with superb illustrations, Fast Facts: Glaucoma is bursting with practical information on the disease, including:
Fast Facts: Glaucoma is a highly readable practical reference for all medical and eyecare practitioners, an aid for students and scientists involved in the study of eye disease and a sound overview for anyone interested in this challenging disease.
What is Glaucoma? How can it be detected? How can it be treated? Fast Facts: Glaucoma answers all of these questions.
"Another great book! A really useful guide to glaucoma with lots of photos, diagrams and easy-to-read information. With each section broken down this book is accessible for all levels." Alice Gravett, Optometry Student, Aston University
"Even though there is an effort to practice evidence-based medicine, there are many gaps that are currently filled by clinical judgement and expert opinion. This book represents a very successful effort to guide the reader on what we know on diagnosis and management of glaucoma. It is very easy to read and pragmatic. The tables and `Key Points' are priceless. There are numerous photographs and illustrations, all with high quality ... Overall, I think this is a superb text that meets the authors' goals, and I must congratulate them." Professor Augusto Azuara-Blanco, Eye News, February/March 2011
