Medical Management of Glaucoma is a comprehensive review of glaucoma, current pharmacological therapies, and treatment guidelines for the disease as put forth by the American Academy of Ophthalmologists (AAO) and European Glaucoma Society (EGS). This book will review glaucoma’s definition, classes, epidemiology, risk factors, pathogenesis (especially discussing intraocular pressure, aqueous humor production, and outflow), diagnosis and assessment tools, and current therapeutic options for patients. Medical Management of Glaucoma will also give ophthalmologists and related healthcare professionals insight into how the patient is affected by their disease by reviewing quality of life issues, adherence, and costs of therapy, which is particularly significant as the management of this chronic disease should be tailored for each patient.​

Glaucoma medical therapy has evolved with the advent of each new drug. This evolution has moved quickly and generated new information that clinicians need to understand, synthesize, and implement about medications that have specific benefits and risks for their glaucoma patients. This book aims to provide clinicians with an accessible guide to the current art and science of using clinically available drugs for the medical therapy of glaucoma. The contributors have attempted to present evidence-based information, while providing perspective from their clinical experience. In order to reflect the extensive changes that have occurred since the publication of the first edition in 1999, new chapters have been added about fixed combination drugs and the medical treatment of pediatric patients, and existing chapters have been thoroughly revised and updated. Glaucoma Medical Therapy will be a valuable reference for ophthalmologists in both practice and training, as well as for other practitioners who have clinical contact with glaucoma patients.

This book provides comprehensive information on current medications for glaucoma. From anatomy and physiology of glaucoma related ocular structure to the current mechanism theories and evaluation techniques of glaucoma, our understanding of glaucoma has been considerably improved in the last three decades. A large number of medications have been developed for the treatment of glaucoma, whose pharmacological information and data on efficacy and safety will be introduced in detail in this book. Practical guidelines for different type of glaucoma and specific patients, and pharmaceutical agents combined usage are concise and credible. The other chapters on patient managements and updates on glaucoma guidelines add useful and practical information to the book. New experimental and clinical investigations are promising and may develop new therapeutic targets for treatment of glaucoma in future. The primary target audience for this book is practicing ophthalmologists and ophthalmologists in training. Other healthcare professionals who need information about medical treatment for glaucoma may also find this book valuable. We will provide both evidence-based information and clinical experience on antiglaucoma medications, and guide the clinician on how to use them for the patient’s maximal benefit.

The first edition of this volume, published in 2012, has become an indispensable reference for clinicians, a fact that inspired the making of this 2nd edition. The book starts with a discussion of current achievements and limitations of the medical therapy of glaucoma. The focus is then placed on conventional glaucoma procedures such as trabeculectomy, deep sclerectomy, and glaucoma drainage device surgery. A chapter is dedicated to the postoperative management of filtering procedures. Further chapters review the role of the ocular surface and the issue of modulation of the scarring processes in glaucoma surgery. The second section covers some promising new devices and techniques. The final part addresses the surgical approaches to some specific clinical challenges: angle-closure glaucoma, concomitant cataract and glaucoma, pediatric glaucoma, and refractory glaucomas. This volume provides residents and general ophthalmologists with valuable new insights into the fascinating and sometimes complex aspects of glaucoma surgery. It will also assist glaucoma specialists when they review and validate therapeutic approaches with their patients.

The proceedings of this symposium on Medical Therapy in Glaucoma are divided in four major parts. The pharmacological introduction gives the reader a short description of factors that are involved between administration of the drug and its action at the desired position in the eye. The new and exciting field of drug delivery systems will be dealt with in this part and part II. Originally we had asked Ken Richardson to give part of the lectures on Membrane technology and basic aspects of cholinergic action. Unfortu nately at the last moment he could not come. Our thanks go to Gavin Paterson and Klaus Heilmann who were willing to take over a part of his job. Part II on cholinergic action offers next to the well-known drugs infor mation about Ocusert. Part III covers the new developments in the adrenergic field, including guanethidine and atenolol. The clinical aspects of medical therapy in glaucoma are covered by Part IV. Many subjects could not be handled. We left out the systemic treatment of glaucoma (diamox, mannitol etc.). We left out all special cases and prob lem cases. Some questions could be answered during the round table discus sion, most remained unanswered. It is clear that there is enough subject-mat ter and interest for another symposium on therapy of glaucoma.
