Abstract
This text provides expert instruction on the techniques currently employed for the surgical treatment of glaucomatous disease, covering both the host of novel microinvasive devices for treatment of milder stages and the refined strategies that enhance success rates in patients with advanced disease. The critical steps in each procedure are clearly described with the aid of many high-quality illustrations and surgical videos. Pearls and pitfalls of the various techniques are highlighted, and helpful information is provided on indications, preoperative considerations, potential intra- and postoperative complications, and strategies for reducing the incidence of such adverse events. Each treatment method is addressed in a dedicated stand-alone chapter, ensuring ease of reference for the practitioner during surgical planning. The field of ophthalmology has advanced rapidly, with innovative technologies and techniques now enabling diseases, including glaucoma, to be treated successfully at any stage of the severity spectrum. Readers will find this book, written by internationally recognized experts in the field, to be an exceptional source of up-to-date information on advanced glaucoma surgical techniques and their application.

Abstract
This unique resource is a practical, easy-to-use guide for the non-ophthalmologist healthcare provider as they encounter patients with eye complaints and other concerning ophthalmic conditions. The Columbia Guide to Basic Elements of Eye Care is specifically designed with the non-ophthalmologist in mind, and provides a foundation of basic eye anatomy and physiology, functional analysis, pathology, and concepts in eye care. Each chapter delivers an accessible summary of various ophthalmic diseases and conditions, all of which are frequently encountered in everyday practice. These chapters provide in-depth discussions on a wide range of topics, from testing and examination procedures to management protocols, referral guidelines and expected frequency of follow-up for each disorder. Complete with hundreds of high-quality, descriptive illustrations and clinical photographs, The Columbia Guide to Basic Elements of Eye Care presents clear, understandable explanations of basic eye anatomy, physiology, disease and treatment for non-ophthalmic practitioners and students. In doing so, this guide provides a framework for determining the normal versus the abnormal, helping the reader recognize which patients require referral, and identify which conditions are developing, require urgent treatment, or can be routinely followed. Non-ophthalmologist healthcare providers and students alike will find this book, written by leaders in the field, a practical resource to consult as they encounter patients with treatable but potentially sight-threatening conditions.

Abstract
This second volume in a short series on the glaucomas is devoted to the two main types of the disease, open angle glaucoma and angle closure glaucoma. The contents are based on observations and experience gained during the management of more than 40,000 hospital and 7,000 private patients, with follow-up of 10 to 50 years. The book is comprehensive in scope. All aspects of diagnosis are carefully examined, surgical indications and techniques are explained, and the role of medical treatment is evaluated. Importantly, chapters are included on topics that are frequently overlooked in other books but are important to early diagnosis, such as diurnal pressure curve, HRT, and non-conventional perimetry.

Only a careful diagnosis of glaucoma will lead to appropriate therapy. In this context, gonioscopy is a very important differential diagnostic tool that permits assessment of the anterior chamber angle and classification of glaucoma as a basis for specific treatment. This book clearly explains how to perform gonioscopy to best effect. The anatomy of the chamber angle is systematically described, and the impact of age, developmental disorders, and pathologies on the chamber angle is explained. …

Abstract
Only a careful diagnosis of glaucoma will lead to appropriate therapy. In this context, gonioscopy is a very important differential diagnostic tool that permits assessment of the anterior chamber angle and classification of glaucoma as a basis for specific treatment. This book clearly explains how to perform gonioscopy to best effect. The anatomy of the chamber angle is systematically described, and the impact of age, developmental disorders, and pathologies on the chamber angle is explained. Particular attention is focused on primary and secondary open-angle and angle-closure glaucomas. In each case, the role of gonioscopy in evaluating the chamber angle is described with the help of many photographs and illustrations. The importance of knowledge of the chamber angle for laser treatment and surgery is explained, and the impact of medications is discussed. Gonioscopy is a straightforward technique that is easy to learn and this examination delivers useful information. This book provides the practitioner with all the information required to use the technique effectively in diagnosis and treatment.
Contents
History of gonioscopy -- How to perform gonioscopy -- Anatomical structures of the chamber angle -- Development of the chamber angle and developmental disorders -- Grading systems and documentation -- Open angle and glaucoma -- Angle closure and glaucoma -- Additional examinations to gonioscopy -- Laser treatments in the chamber angle -- Surgery in the chamber angle -- Influences of medications on the chamber angle.
