Expert Releases Definitive Glaucoma Guide

Centre for Eye Research Australia (CERA) Managing Director and Head of Glaucoma at the Eye and Ear Hospital, Professor Jonathan Crowston has launched the world’s most comprehensive clinical reference guide to glaucoma. Spanning two volumes, Glaucoma, provides in-depth guidance on all aspects of adult and paediatric glaucoma with volume one devoted to diagnosis and medical treatment and volume two focusing on surgical techniques.

Renowned ophthalmologist Professor Hugh Taylor AC describes the reference was an outstanding achievement that will be of great benefit to any medical professional with an interest in eye disease.

“With the many advances in glaucoma management and treatment, it’s difficult for the busy consultant or overworked student to stay on top of new developments. This book is a treat; it’s upto- date, well illustrated, and clearly and incisively written. It will be an excellent resource for glaucoma specialists, general ophthalmologists and optometrists,” Professor Taylor said.

Professor Crowston co-edited the reference that features contributions by more than 150 glaucoma specialists from around the world.

As the leading cause of irreversible blindness worldwide, glaucoma continues to pose a serious public health problem. Over the last few years a number of exciting new developments have changed the face of glaucoma treatment,” Professor Crowston said.’
