Ocular Blood Flow and Glaucomatous Optic Neuropathy

Features: Used Book in Good Condition
By (author): Maneli Mozaffarieh, Josef Flammer

It has been suspected since more than a century that disturbed ocular blood flow (OBF) may play a role in the pathogenesis of glaucoma. Reduced OBF has been measured in glaucoma patients by numberless centres with different techniques in different tissues of the eye. And reduced OBF has been proven to be of prognostic value. Nevertheless the implementation of this knowledge into clinical practice has been very slow.

This practical book will help many ophthalmologists to better understand glaucoma. The reading of this book will not only improve patient care but also give the reader intellectual satisfaction.

By (author): Augusto Azuara-Blanco, Vital P Costa, Richard P Wilson

Beginning with a full classification and profile and ending with an overview of treatment options, Handbook of Glaucoma distills much of the medical literature into one straightforward reference. This guide is ideal for ophthalmologists, eye surgeons, geriatricians and any clinician attending to glaucoma patients.
