Glaucoma Identification and Co-management
New to This Edition
Glaucoma Identification and Co-management aims to provide the background knowledge needed by optometrists embarking on co-management/shared-care of Primary Open Angle Glaucoma (POAG) and to reinforce the knowledge of those already involved in co-management/shared-care practice. While the majority of readers will be registered optometrists, the book will also serve as a valuable reference work for students of optometry. Co-management/shared care schemes require a combination of skills from several disciplines – notably ophthalmology and optometry, and both professions are represented among the contributors. We have contributions from pharmacists too, who also have a key role to play in the management of patients suffering from glaucoma. Epidemiology, gonioscopy, co-management schemes and a pharmacological as well as clinical approach to the medical treatment of glaucoma are covered.
- Multidisciplinary approach to the topic
- Comprehensive in the breadth of topics brought together into one book
- Contributions from international experts in the field
"Both informative and easy to read and consequently will provide an invaluable core text for Optometrists who are undertaking further training in glaucoma."
