Reviews for First Edition:
"Tarek Shaarawy, Mark Sherwood, Roger Hitchings, and Jonathan Crowston have coedited a masterful new 2-volume text on the diagnosis and therapy of glaucoma. Both the ophthalmologist-in-training and the ophthalmologist faced with glaucoma decision making on a regular basis could probably not do better than consulting-if not beginning with-this text for a thorough evaluation." -- JAMA, January 12, 2011-Vol 305, No. 2
"It is quickly becoming my favorite text." -- Sandra M. Johnson, MD, Department of Ophthalmology, University of Virginia
"It serves as a handy reference for the clinician when the hard copy is not immediately available, literally at one’s fingertips. This book is a must for the glaucoma specialist and a welcome addition for the comprehensive ophthalmologist." -- Paul J. Lama, MD
"These two volumes are, in my opinion, the definitive text upon which all others will have to strive to compete against. It was a pleasure to read through them, and they will reside in an honored place on my active clinical bookshelf and should be there in yours as well." -- Reviewed by Richard Bensinger, MD for Ocular Surgery News (Sept. 2010)
