Diagnosis & Management of Glaucoma

by R Ramakrishnan, SR Krishnadas, Mona Khurana, Alan L Robin

With the changing demographic profile and an increasing number of aging population, Asia will have disproportionately large number of persons with glaucoma, mostly with angle-closure disease. Bilateral blindness is projected in 11 millions of those with glaucoma and effective opportunistic screening, early detection and appropriate treatment measures will remain the key-to-combat glaucoma blindness. In recent years, there has been virtually an explosion of knowledge with accumulation of new information on the inheritance and pathophysiology of glaucoma. The text on glaucoma has been written by practitioners of glaucoma of national and international repute and the authors have made a sincere attempt to present the most complex information available on glaucoma in a very simple and lucid style.
