Cataract surgery is one of the most frequently performed procedure in the United States, and cataracts are a leading cause of visual impairment in the world. Glaucoma is also a very common eye disease with an expected 3.3 million Americans afflicted with primary open angle glaucoma by 2020. The coexistence of these two diseases is not uncommon and management of a cataract can have significant impact on the glaucoma status of a patient.Cataract surgery textbooks may have one chapter dedicated to the management of cataract with coexistent glaucoma. Likewise, a typical glaucoma surgical text dedicates one chapter to the management of these two diseases concurrently. This book will focus 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. It should be a wonderful resource for general ophthalmologists and residents as well as glaucoma fellows.
