Pearls in Glaucoma Therapy

by Tanuj Dada, Parul Ichhpujani, George L Spaeth

The text Pearls in Glaucoma Therapy outlines the scientific theories on the causation of glaucoma, incorporates the risk factors for disease and includes a detailed insight into the work up of glaucoma patients including both basic tests, such as gonioscopy or optic nerve head evaluation, and advanced investigations of structure and function like the optical coherence tomography (OCT), glaucoma diagnosis (GDx) and Heidelberg retina tomography (HRT). The main goal in glaucoma therapy is to set “Target IOP” and initiate medical therapy to preserve the health-related quality of life of the patient and this is clearly given in the text with the help of several case studies which greatly benefits the reader. The protocol for starting therapy, details of each class of medications, changing or adding treatment, follow-up and methods to increase compliance are given along with a reference to special situations, such as pregnancy, congenital glaucoma, neovascular, uveitic glaucoma and so on which require a modification of standard therapy. The last section of the book deals with the non-IOP dependent ocular and systemic factors, such as vascular dysregulation, lifestyle modifications, and impact of glaucoma on the quality of life of the patient.
