Glaucoma affects 1 per cent of the population over the age of forty, and as such it is important that the practicing clinician and surgeon recognize both primary and secondary glaucoma and cases associated with other disorders: it is not a singular disease but a group of diseases with some common characteristics. With top quality illustrations in an atlas format, this authoritative text has been written by world experts in glaucoma, and presents the reader with the whole spectrum of the disease. Retaining the format of the successful and well-received first edition, it is divided into three main sections: The Basics of Glaucoma, Clinical Entities and Treatment of Glaucoma, with an additional chapter on cyclocryotherapy.
