Description

Glaucoma is the most common neurodegenerative disease and the second most common cause of blindness worldwide after cataract. While the diagnosis of end-stage glaucoma can be made by any physician trained in the use of the ophthalmoscope, it is preferable to diagnose glaucoma at an early stage, when intervention can alter the course of the disease and change the prognosis. Packed with superb illustrations, Fast Facts: Glaucoma is bursting with practical information on the disease, including: - A concise overview of the glaucoma subtypes and their global prevalence - A clear explanation of the pathophysiology alongside what the patient actually experiences - The questions to ask when taking a history - The key elements of a comprehensive eye examination - How to minimize the impact of the disease on the patient and reduce risk factors - The latest medical and surgical treatments - Monitoring of the condition - including detail of follow-up examinations Fast Facts: Glaucoma is a highly readable practical reference for all medical and eyecare practitioners, an aid for students and scientists involved in the study of eye disease and a sound overview for anyone interested in this challenging disease. What is Glaucoma? How can it be detected? How can it be treated? Fast Facts: Glaucoma answers all of these questions.
