Thoroughly updated, and now in full color, Shields' Textbook of Glaucoma, Sixth Edition is a clinically focused and practical textbook for general ophthalmologists treating patients with glaucoma. This classic text offers a rational approach to the medical and surgical management of glaucoma and presents a total care plan for the patient.
This edition has five new or reconfigured chapters—management of the glaucoma patient/approach to the patient; principles of medical therapy; adrenergic agonists and antagonists; cholinergic stimulators and hyperosmotic agents; and neuroprotection and other investigational drugs. The book examines new technologies for intraocular pressure assessment and current diagnostic technologies such as optical coherence tomography, spectral domain optical coherence tomography, Heidelberg retinal tomograph, and GDx. Noted experts detail advances in surgical treatment of glaucoma including new glaucoma implants and angle surgery. Coverage also includes advances in genetics of glaucomatous diseases.
A companion website includes the fully searchable text and an image bank.

"The 6th edition of Shields Textbook of Glaucoma will be released almost 30 years after the first
textbook of its kind in 1982. With this latest edition, the ability to have convenient access to the full text
online and image bank adds tremendous value to clinicians seeking for a quick reference. The textbook
has over 600 pages of valuable insights on all aspects of glaucoma and its management. The authors have
extracted and condensed extensive knowledge from the literature as evidenced by the complete
bibliographic listing after each chapter.
The book is divided into 3 sections: basic aspects of glaucoma, clinical forms of glaucoma, and
management of glaucoma. For the 6th edition, the authors have also added two new chapters—Chapter 8:
Molecular Genetics and Pharmacogenomics of Glaucomas, and Chapter 9: Clinical Epidemiology of
Glaucoma. The tables and figures in Chapter 8 do an outstanding job of unifying the current genes
identified in glaucoma. Chapter 9 poignantly sends home the message of the worldwide burden from
preventable vision loss from glaucoma and the projected increase in glaucoma as the aging population
grows in the United States.
One of the most challenging conditions to manage for the practicing ophthalmologist is the glaucoma
suspect, and Chapter 10 gives a concise algorithm and approach that can be easily applied in the clinical
setting. Chapters 13, 14, and 40 focus on childhood glaucoma and include many exquisite full-color
photos of ophthalmic findings in pediatric glaucoma.
Section III of the book is dedicated to the management of glaucoma, beginning with an introduction into
the principles of medical therapy and concludes with timely discussions around novel surgical
interventions, such as canaloplasty, and combined surgical approach to managing cataract and glaucoma.
The chapters in this section offer excellent illustrations of surgical technique and where appropriate, color
photos taken during surgery. The authors deserve high praise for this expertly updated and wonderfully
illustrated comprehensive textbook on glaucoma."
