Screening is thus a major issue in the fight against glaucoma, especially as there are effective treatments that can prevent or slow progression of the disease.
Written in simple and clear language by doctors specializing in eye disorders, this book covers all aspects of the disease and provides important information for those who have glaucoma and the people close to them:
