About 400,000 Canadians suffer from glaucoma. In fact, this chronic eye disease affects 1% to 3% of the population of the Western world age 40 and over, and its incidence increases with age--reaching 10% in people over 80. Glaucoma is an extremely insidious disease. It can destroy the functional capacity of the eyes irreversibly and without warning. Screening is thus a major issue in the fight against glaucoma, especially as there are effective treatments that can prevent or slow progression of the disease.
Written in simple and clear language by doctors specializing in eye disorders, this book covers all aspects of the disease and provides important information for those who have glaucoma and the people close to them:
The different forms and symptoms of glaucoma
Known causes and risk factors
Diagnostic tests
Drug therapies, laser treatments and surgical procedures
