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.

If you have ever uttered the commonly expressed lament, “Glaucoma is so confusing!” then this text is for you. You will no longer be bewildered. Why practitioners may be confused about how to be of help to patients with glaucoma – in its many incarnations and reincarnations – is easily understood. The issue seems to be overwhelming when one considers that the already massive popu- tion of those with glaucoma is increasing rapidly as the world’s population increases and ages. During the past 50 years the fundamental defnition of glaucoma has changed almost 180°, and the indications for treatment have become more variable and c- troversial, some advising early therapy and others strongly cautioning against such an approach: Various diagnostic tests have come and gone and are interpreted in such different ways that there seems to be no consensus; surgical techniques come in and out of fashion in perplexing ways. There seems to be a constantly shifting, sandy foundation on which are built unsteady schools of ever-varying advice. Why prac- tioners, patients, and the public are often bewildered is understandable.

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.

This book is essentially a text on the surgical management of glaucoma. It is the only book presently available that comprehensively covers all aspects of surgical management?namely, an appropriate decision-making process for introducing surgery into the management of glaucoma, a choice of the most suitable surgical procedure in individual cases of glaucoma, the preoperative preparation, anesthesia, surgical technique and postoperative care. The most effective and widely used operations are described in step-by-step detail, with excellent photographs and line drawings to illustrate the descriptions. This includes descriptions of trabeculectomy, subscleral Scheie, setons, laser glaucoma procedures, including holmium laser sclerostomy and YAG laser cyclophotodestruction.The reader is not only guided into and through the surgical procedure, but is also carefully guided into the choice of appropriate surgical procedures for the glaucoma problem for which the surgery is being used to ameliorate. The text also describes in detail the indications and techniques for the use of antimetabolites for bleb enhancement, and the management of surgical complications.

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.
