Subtitled Natural Medicine for Self-Healing, this book is an encyclopedic study guide, a download of the compiled research and experience of an eye doctor with thirty years experience on the front lines of holistic medicine. Dr. Swartwout has even included specific remedy and source suggestions in this heavily expanded third edition. In depth coverage has been added of multiple areas that will be of interest to the inquiring clinician and even clinical researchers will find new perspectives worthy of investigation. The book draws on an extremely wide range of effective therapies from around the world including European Biological Medicine. Detailed coverage is now included on reversing AGE (Advanced Glycation Endproducts) as well as an eye opening perspective on antioxidants, a section on Excitotoxins, and some discussion of Dr. Swartwout's 5 Phases of Health model based on Bioelectronics of Vincent that measures the parameters necessary to both quantitatively and qualitatively evaluate biological energy (in microwatts) in a fluid milieu. Those factors boil down to protons, electrons and photons in the author's penetrating insight into biophysics. Without oversimplifying anything, the discussion is aimed at supporting those patients and practitioners who are serious about discovering what may be possible in the realm of actually healing the pathophysiology of glaucoma.“This book is a great contribution to the emerging paradigm of 21st century vision care. It provides a thorough review of many healing modalities in order to help a person's eye, body and soul heal the condition of glaucoma… A must for any patient or professional working with this condition. Dr. Swartwout is a pioneer in helping to regenerate our precious gift of sight.” - Marc Grossman, O.D., L.Ac., co-author of Greater Vision and co-author of Natural Eye Care

Glaucoma is one of the main causes of blindness throughout the world. It is characterized by death of the retinal ganglion cells, which is associated with loss of the axons making up the optic nerve. Recent studies have demonstrated support for the classification of glaucoma as a degenerative disease of the central nervous system (CNS), leading researchers to look at identifying neuroprotection strategies for the treatment of this disease, like those used for other degenerative diseases of the CNS. This book will provide an in-depth examination of the most recent findings regarding glaucoma, including risk factors, diagnosis, clinical monitoring, treatment, and above all, the need for treatment based on the concept of neuroprotection. A large part of the book is devoted to research related to this new approach to the treatment of glaucoma. * Describes the most recent developments on neuroprotection of the optic nerve, including experimental models now used and clinical protocols * Discusses new strategies for the prevention of neuronal injury in glaucoma patients * Focuses on evidence-based risk factors, innovative diagnostic aspects and advanced medical/surgical treatment of glaucoma

Renowned experts present the latest knowledge in ... In this volume of Developments in Ophthalmology, a panel of renowned glaucoma surgeons reports its findings and the updated evidence-based literature data on indications, outcomes, pearls and pitfalls of techniques in which they all have an undisputable 'hands-on' everyday experience. The publication begins with chapters on conventional procedures, i.e. trabeculectomy (still the gold standard), deep sclerectomy, and glaucoma drainage device implantation explicitly focusing on postoperative management. The role of the ocular surface in glaucoma surgery and the issue of wound healing and its modulation through antimetabolites are further discussed. In the second part, the attention shifts to new techniques which still have a marginal role, but are promising for particular indications. In the last part, the greatest challenges of glaucoma surgery such as the surgical approach to angle closure, concomitant glaucoma and cataract as well as pediatric glaucoma are discussed in detail. Finally, the last chapter is dedicated to cyclodestructive techniques. This volume is recommended to glaucoma surgeons and glaucoma specialists seeking information on the best therapy for their patients, but also to general ophthalmologists who refer their patients for surgery or follow them up afterwards.

This debut edition of Visualizing Physical Geography encompasses the science of physical geography from local to global scales, using a uniquely visual approach to take students on a journey from the top layers of the Earth’s atmosphere to the rocks underlying the ocean basins to the forests of the farthest continents. As students explore the critical topics of physical geography, their study of the climate, surface features, and habitats around the world uses basic concepts of ecology, geology, chemistry, environmental science, biology, and physics and many other disciplines. Visualizing Physical Geography reinforces these interacting components and, with its premier art program, vividly illustrates the interconnectedness of physical processes that weave together to create our planet’s dynamic surface and atmosphere. Visualizing Geography relies heavily on other visuals with text to elucidate concepts for students and solidify their understanding of them. The goal is to help students understand the world around them and interpret what they see in a meaningful, accurate and exciting way. The content, design and layout of the text takes advantage of the full capacity in which students process information – visual as well as verbal. Visualizing Geography also helps students examine their own personal studying and learning styles with several new pedagogical aids –– encouraging students to apply what they are learning to their everyday lives. Visualizing Geography continues to offer ongoing study tips and psychological techniques for mastering the material. Most importantly students are provided with numerous opportunities to immediately access their understanding.
