Textbooks

As full disclosure, I have not gotten a chance to fully review all of these resources – it’s on my list of things to do, and with many of these textbooks I currently don’t have the capital to purchase all of these books. However, I do want to still aggregate all of these books together so that as you’re trying to decide what books to get, there’s at least a working list of available texts on the subject.

Glaucoma, Second Edition

Shaarawy TM, Sherwood MB, Hitchings RA, Crowston JG. Glaucoma, 2nd ed. London: Saunders Ltd., 2014.

This 2-volume text provides a comprehensive summary of glaucoma, with considerations for management in various clinical situations. I have not gotten a chance to read through the bulk of this book yet, but it appears quite detailed and may be a good reference for those who manage a lot of glaucoma in their clinical practice.

Color Atlas and Synopsis of Clinical Ophthalmology: Glaucoma

Rhee DJ. Color Atlas and Synopsis of Clinical Ophthalmology: Wills Eye Institute: Glaucoma (Wills Eye Institute Atlas Series), 2nd ed. Philadelphia: Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2012.

Basic and Clinical Science Course: Glaucoma

Girkin CA, ed. Basic and Clinical Science Course, Section 10: Glaucoma, 2017-2018 ed. San Francisco: American Academy of Ophthalmology, 2017.

Websites

A Google search for “glaucoma” yielded quite a few patient-oriented sites. Since this website is geared towards ophthalmology professionals, this list will not contain patient-education materials but more in-depth technical stuff.

Atlas of Gonioscopy

Alward WLM. Atlas of Gonioscopy. University of Iowa Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences.

Iowa Glaucoma Curriculum

Alward WLM. Iowa Glaucoma Curriculum. University of Iowa Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences.

Journal Articles

This list will take the most time, since there are so many articles written about glaucoma and more is discovered about glaucoma every day! Stay tuned as I continue to work on the site!
