This second Glaucoma volume of the Essentials in Ophthalmology series, like the first, provides a comprehensive picture of recent progress in both basic clinical research and applied clinical science in the study of glaucoma. Rather than a replacement for traditional textbooks on glaucoma, this volume serves as a conceptual bridge between original research and textbook presentation. The book encompasses frequently unmentioned aspects of therapy, including adherence, persistence and health economics. Glaucoma II provides the reader with diverse and salient topics reflective of the contemporary, evidence-based approach to the study, treatment and management of glaucoma.

From the reviews:

"This hardback book is part of an eight-volume subspecialty series called Essentials in Ophthalmology. The intention is to expedite the transfer of new information into a textbook form, and hence clinical practice. This text has 11 chapters, generally quite easy reading, with a logical layout. Each chapter is written by world experts on the particular topic, and is well referenced. Overall, I found this an extremely valuable read ."
