The Second Edition contains new questions and is completely updated!
Curbside Consultation in Glaucoma, Second Edition contains new questions and brief, practical, evidence-based answers to the most frequently asked questions that are posed during a “curbside consultation” between surgical colleagues.
Dr. Steven J. Gedde and associate editors Dr. Dale K. Heuer, Dr. Richard A. Lewis, and Dr. Joseph Panarelli have assembled the top glaucoma consultants from the United States and abroad to offer expert advice, preferences, and opinions on tough clinical questions commonly associated with glaucoma in this updated reference. The unique Q&A format provides quick access to current information related to glaucoma in the simplicity of a conversation between two colleagues. Numerous images, diagrams, and references are included to enhance the text and illustrate surgical pearls.
Some of the questions that are answered inside the Second Edition include:

- Do anti-VEGF agents produce intraocular pressure elevation?
- How should I set a target intraocular pressure?
- How should I manage a patient who is progressing at low levels of intraocular pressure?
- Does cataract extraction produce significant and sustained intraocular pressure reduction? When should I perform a combined procedure versus cataract surgery alone?
