glaucoma affects millions of people worldwide and is the second leading cause of blindness. major advances in innovative surgical techniques, collectively termed minimally invasive glaucoma surgery (migs), have revolutionized the field. these groundbreaking ophthalmic surgery approaches are effective, are not bleb-dependent, and they result in fewer complications. authored by a who’s who of prominent experts in the migs movement, this book represents the most comprehensive book written to date on the subject.
leading glaucoma surgeons offer unique perspectives and experience gleaned from developing and mastering these state-of-the-art techniques. the first four sections discuss fundamental concepts of eye anatomy and structure, outflow implications, and aqueous production. the remaining sections cover the latest cutting-edge procedures elucidated through text descriptions and case studies, with the final two chapters offering insights into how to best incorporate migs into your practice and possibilities for combining migs procedures to expand the treatment algorithm for patients with more moderate to advanced disease. meticulous, step-by-step drawings, photos, and surgical videos further delineate advanced migs techniques.

this atlas offers a truly comprehensive update on the use of imaging technologies for the diagnosis and follow-up of glaucoma. in addition to standard automated perimetry, gonioscopy, fundus photography, and stereophotography, other advanced, high-resolution methods for imaging the eye in glaucoma are explained in detail, including ultrasound biomicroscopy, confocal scanning laser ophthalmoscopy, scanning laser polarimetry, and spectral domain optical coherence tomography. the role of the various tests and the keys to optimizing their use in clinical practice are detailed with the aid of high-quality figures in order to enable the reader to achieve the best possible performance when applying these tools. the risk of developing visual disability and blindness as a consequence of glaucoma varies widely among affected individuals. personalized testing strategies and tailored therapeutic interventions are required to effectively reduce visual impairment due to glaucoma. glaucoma imaging will assist residents, researchers, and clinicians in improving their ability to understand and integrate the information obtained using traditional techniques with the reports provided by computer-assisted image instruments.
optical coherence tomography is a multifaceted tool in the management of glaucoma. optical coherence tomography has been used in various aspects of diagnosis and follow-up in glaucoma patients. the practical manual serves as a guide to the judicious use of the oct for the diagnosis of glaucoma looking at each aspect of oct imaging—rnfl, optic nerve head, macular, ganglion cell complex and the anterior chamber angle. the advantages and fallacies of oct are discussed with several clinical examples for an easy learning experience. common pitfalls in oct imaging and interpretation are mentioned along with an extensive review of literature. the reader will benefit from this practical manual and gain expertise in the use of oct for the diagnosis and progression of glaucomatous optic neuropathy.
