About this book

Introduction

The coexistence of cataract and glaucoma is common and management of a cataract can have significant impact on the glaucoma status of a patient. This text focuses on the treatment of cataract in the setting of glaucoma using an evidence-based medicine approach. Managing cataracts to the best advantage of the glaucoma should result in the best visual outcomes for patients. Cataract Surgery in the Glaucoma Patient is a wonderful resource for ophthalmologists who care for glaucoma patients.
