Glaucoma Therapy: Effective Pharmacological Approaches
This volume is a concise, but comprehensive summary of current knowledge, designed to meet the needs of all those involved in the pharmacological treatment and care of glaucoma, one of the leading causes of blindness throughout the world. Of interest to both researchers and clinicians, this work takes a unique approach in this field by synthesizing findings from clinical, biochemical, and molecular studies, both by the author and from the literature. It is thus an important reference for all those involved in treatment and research on glaucoma, as well as a broader audience of ophthalmologists, pharmacologists, and scientists involved in the study of the regulation of aqueous humor secretion in animals and humans.
