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
Atlas of Optical Coherence Tomography for Glaucoma is a case-based atlas intended to teach the reader how to interpret the results of OCT in glaucoma patients and glaucoma suspects. After a brief description of how OCT is used in particular situations, chapters depict actual case presentations from authors’ practices with legends that describe the case and how OCT is used to make the diagnosis of glaucoma or glaucoma progression. Emphasis is placed on where OCT can lead the clinician astray by providing false positive or false negative results resulting in misdiagnosis. The intention of the format is to make it easily digestible in a weekend read and make the practitioner comfortable with OCT interpretation. Examples are presented from all of the available OCT manufacturers.

Abstract
This book provides an overview on new insights in glaucoma, the latest technological developments, scientific achievements, and novel research leading to new paradigms in glaucoma diagnosis. Readers will discover a broad picture starting from theoretical perspectives in diagnostic criteria followed by practical examination and clinical interpretations while highlighting potential pitfalls and limitations in analysis. Non-invasive, modern technologies allowing visualization and quantification of various parts of the human eye are fast evolving and improving interpretation of modern diagnostic possibilities are essential to fill the gap between sophisticated equipment, complex clinical data, and the need for precision-medicine based interpretation. Issues such as the importance of intraocular, intracranial, and ocular perfusion pressures (IOP, ICP, OPP) in the pathogenesis of glaucoma; and imaging modalities for examination of the optic nerve head, retinal fiber layer, and visual field assessment in glaucoma are explored in these chapters. The problem-based learning approach presented herein offers a succinct go-to-guide to read and discover answers.

Abstract
This book presents a new avenue in the field of ophthalmology and sheds light on the field of eye imaging. With the increasing availability of electronic devices and their important role in both personal and professional aspects of human life, there is a growing need for perfect vision. Ophthalmic imaging is a major tool for screening and documenting eye diseases in both medical and surgical fields of ophthalmology and is also of use for ophthalmologists around the globe. The number of eye-imaging devices has increased dramatically, however undiagnosed or poorly managed eye diseases remain a significant cause of ocular and visual problems worldwide. This essential guide addresses the need for a book that is dedicated to ophthalmic imaging, covering the cornea, glaucoma, retina and orbital imaging with updates on medical and surgical aspects of the topic.

Abstract
This book provides comprehensive information on the genetics of eye diseases affecting various parts of the eye, and addresses a range of genetic etiologies. These diseases include several hereditary disorders of anterior and posterior segment, and with different genetic etiologies. The genetics of eye diseases is a field that has been rapidly growing over the last two decades, and comprises a vast area with considerable clinical and genetic heterogeneity. The main goal of this work is to discuss the status quo of genetics for each of the disorders covered, and to highlight unusual or atypical patterns of inheritance and genetic associations. For each relevant gene, it describes the pathogenic associations and variants, genotype-phenotype correlations, and functions at the cellular and molecular level. Genetics of Eye Diseases offers a valuable reference guide for geneticists and clinicians alike, while also providing a comprehensive overview of the field for graduate and doctoral-level students. In addition to sharing essential information on the genetics of each disease, it highlights recent advances that are representative of the developments in the field as a whole.

Abstract
Vos yeux sont remplis d'un liquide fabriqué par le corps ciliaire. Ce liquide s'écoule à travers la pupille, devant le cristallin, puis sort par un drain appelé trabéculum. Le glaucome est une maladie dans laquelle une pression accrue dans l'œil endommage le nerf optique. Il survient généralement lorsque le trabéculum (drain) ne fonctionne pas et que le liquide ne peut pas s'écouler de l'œil. L'accumulation de liquide dans la partie avant de l'œil augmente la pression dans l'œil, ce qui endommage le nerf optique. Ce dommage peut d'abord entraîner une perte de la vision latérale (sur les côtés). Si elle n'est pas traitée, elle peut entraîner une perte de la vision centrale. Le présent dépliant définit le glaucome aigu et le glaucome chronique et décrit les différents examens effectués pour diagnostiquer le glaucome. Les médicaments, le laser et la chirurgie sont des traitements possibles. Des instructions sont aussi fournies pour l’utilisation des gouttes ophtalmiques.
This pamphlet is a French translation of "Glaucoma Management" pamphlet 0140. Your eyes are filled with a fluid made by the ciliary body. This fluid flows through the pupil, in front of the lens, and then out through a drain called the trabecular meshwork. Glaucoma is a disease where increased pressure in the eye damages the optic nerve. It usually happens when the trabecular meshwork (drain) does not work and fluid cannot drain from the eye. Fluid buildup in the front part of the eye increases pressure in your eye, damaging the optic nerve. This damage may at first cause loss of side vision. If left untreated, it may cause loss of central vision. Acute and chronic glaucoma are defined. The various tests used to diagnose glaucoma are described. Treatment can be medication, laser, or surgery. We have also provided instructions on how to use eye drops.
