Abstract
This book offers a comprehensive guide to the use of glaucoma drainage devices (GDDs) in various clinical settings, and covers aspects ranging from the basics to managing complications. The aim of this work is to provide readers with a practical go-to desktop book to assist in and enhance their surgical competence with glaucoma drainage devices. Starting with the history of GDDs, it addresses various devices, their models and modifications, and highlights their advantages and disadvantages through numerous illustrations. The indications for the drainage devices are discussed in detail, using patient cases with photographs. The book describes the techniques for all devices in detail, which are explained further in accompanying videos. After covering the basic techniques, the book provides extensive notes on modifications that may be required in various case presentations such as congenital glaucoma, post-penetrating keratoplasty with extensive peripheral synechiae, and procedure through pars plans etc. Complications and their management are subsequently addressed. The book is an essential guide to help surgeons match patients to the most suitable device, and to support patients from preparation through post-operative care. Primarily intended for glaucoma surgeons, it offers a valuable resource for fellows in training, and all who have an interest in glaucoma surgery.

Abstract
This well-illustrated book is intended as the go-to guide for the identification and management of the complications associated with specific glaucoma procedures. All of the routinely performed procedures are covered: filtration surgery, including trabeculectomy and ExPRESS shunt, nonpenetrating surgeries such as deep sclerectomy and canaloplasty, procedures involving the placement of tube shunt devices, glaucoma laser treatments, and minimally invasive glaucoma surgeries (MIGS). The book is succinct but sufficiently detailed to provide the reader with a very well informed description of possible complications and the best way to manage them, based on the evidence from recent and seminal research. The authors are recognized experts who come from a wide geographic and varied glaucoma background. The book will be ideal for all surgeons, whether new or experienced, who seek easily accessible, reliable guidance on how to manage the intraoperative and early and late postoperative complications that may arise when performing glaucoma surgery.

Abstract
The book is provided open access under a CC BY 4.0 license.
This book covers all aspects of minimally invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS) and provides detailed information on each MIGS device, including its mechanism of action; patient selection; implantation techniques; post-operative management; and a review of the existing literature. Step-by-step descriptions are provided for the surgical technique used in implanting each MIGS device, accompanied by clear photographs of each surgical stage. Other areas covered include intra-operative gonioscopy (with tips on optimising the view of the anterior chamber angle) and the management of the intra-operative and post-operative complications. Essential information on the anatomy and physiology of the different aqueous outflow pathways is also included. A separate chapter addresses the introduction of MIGS globally, including the consideration of different reimbursement environments and the different types of glaucoma, e.g. angle closure glaucoma. This book will assist both glaucoma surgeons and general ophthalmologists in overcoming the learning curve involved in performed MIGS, by providing valuable and practical clinical pearls.

Abstract
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. SLT is used to treat chronic open angle glaucoma by helping to control the pressure inside your eye. A laser (highly focused beam of light) is focused on the drains to help the fluid move more freely. The pamphlet describes getting ready for treatment, how the treatment is done, care after laser treatment, and possible risks. The French version of this pamphlet 1912, "Trabéculoplastie sélective au laser (TSL) pour le glaucome", is also available.

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. La trabéculoplastie sélective au laser (TSL) est utilisée pour traiter le glaucome chronique à angle ouvert en aidant à contrôler la pression à l'intérieur de votre œil. Un laser (faisceau lumineux très concentré) est dirigé sur les drains pour aider le liquide à circuler plus librement. Dans le présent dépliant, nous vous expliquons comment vous préparer au traitement, comment est effectué le traitement, les soins qui suivent le traitement au laser et les risques possibles.
This pamphlet is a French translation of "Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty (SLT) for Glaucoma" pamphlet 0333. 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. SLT is used to treat chronic open angle glaucoma by helping to control the pressure inside your eye. A laser (highly focused beam of light) is focused on the drains to help the fluid move more freely. The pamphlet describes getting ready for treatment, how the treatment is done, care after laser treatment, and possible risks.
