This second volume in a short series on the glaucomas is devoted to the two main types of the disease, open angle glaucoma and angle closure glaucoma. The contents are based on observations and experience gained during the management of more than 40,000 hospital and 7,000 private patients, with follow-up of 10 to 50 years. The book is comprehensive in scope. All aspects of diagnosis are carefully examined, surgical indications and techniques are explained, and the role of medical treatment is evaluated. Importantly, chapters are included on topics that are frequently overlooked in other books but are important to early diagnosis, such as diurnal pressure curve, HRT, and non-conventional perimetry. This volume provides a wealth of information and includes almost 1000 illustrations, the majority in color, as well as an accompanying DVD of surgical techniques. It will be an invaluable asset for all ophthalmologists.

"The book represents a valuable source of information for anybody interested in all aspects of the disease in a more detailed and comprehensive way. ... The book is very well illustrated and most of the diagrams and drawings are very intuitive and definitely helpful in supplementing the text content. ... we can recommend the book to glaucoma specialists as a reference source and as a useful tool to broaden one's perspective of several aspects of this complex and sight-threatening disease." (Radouil Tzekov and David Richards, Graefe's Archive for Clinical and Experimental Ophthalmology, Vol. 254, 2016)
