Congenital glaucoma is a complex problem, which has been a frequent cause of blindness in the past. Over the past decades, the prognosis of congenital glaucoma has completely changed. Surgical results are very good and enable these children to integrate entirely as adults in society. Based on the authors' accumulated experience of more than 50 years and 860 cases operated for congenital glaucoma, this well-structured and lavishly illustrated textbook-atlas covers all aspects of congenital and infantile glaucoma, such as the original method for examining new-borns under general anaesthesia in the slit-lamp, the signs and symptoms of the disease and the differential diagnosis, the role and importance of the echometry value for early diagnosis, the gonioscopy results and the three types of congenital glaucomas (pure, refractory and late) and the type of surgery to be performed in each case with the evaluation of follow-up long-term results. Written by renowned international experts of the field, this book will become the golden standard in the field of Pediatric and Congenital Glaucomas.

All in all I would recommend this book, which is certainly a good asset for every glaucoma specialist to have as a reference." -- Michele Iester, Graefe's Archive for Clinical and Experimental Ophthalmology, Vol. 248, 2010
"Pediatric glaucomas is probably the most interesting and in-depth books on this topic I have ever read. ... I highly recommend Pedriatic glaucoma. Besides being a valuable tool for ophthalmologists that deal with this fascinating and difficult topic, this book is surely beneficial for all doctors in search of greater knowledge beyond our modern technological world, which often causes us to forget about the ethical, humane, and non instrumental aspects of our day-to-day clinical work." Paolo Brusini, European Journal of Ophthalmology, 2011
“The book represents a valuable source of information for anybody interested in all aspects of the disease in a more detailed and comprehensive way. … The book is very well illustrated and most of the diagrams and drawings are very intuitive and definitely helpful in supplementing the text content. … we can recommend the book to glaucoma specialists as a reference source and as a useful tool to broaden one’s perspective of several aspects of this complex and sight-threatening disease.” (Radouil Tzekov and David Richards, Graefe's Archive for Clinical and Experimental Ophthalmology, Vol. 254, 2016)
