Product Description

Cataract surgery is one of the most frequently performed procedure in the United States, and cataracts are a leading cause of visual impairment in the world. Glaucoma is also a very common eye disease with an expected 3.3 million Americans afflicted with primary open angle glaucoma by 2020. The coexistence of these two diseases is not uncommon and management of a cataract can have significant impact on the glaucoma status of a patient.

This book will focus on the treatment of cataract in the setting of glaucoma, using an evidence-based medicine approach. Managing cataracts to the best advantage of the glaucoma should result in the best visual outcomes for patients. It should be a wonderful resource for general ophthalmologists and residents as well as glaucoma fellows.
