Primary or chronic open angle glaucoma is a painless condition usually associated with high pressure in the eye. It affects approximately 4 per cent of all people over the age of 50. Untreated, glaucoma is a major cause of blindness worldwide.

Dr Trope provides the answers to dozens of commonly asked questions in sections headed All About Glaucoma, Tests for Glaucoma, and All About Treatment. Also included are discussions of possible complications, detailed illustrations, and a listing of glaucoma societies in Canada, the United States, and United Kingdom.
This valuable guide is an essential reference not only for patients but also for all health-care professionals, including general practitioners and optometrists.About the Author:
