Details

Uveitic Glaucoma provides an overview of the disease, as well as the pathophysiology, diagnosis, management, and an examination of the disease in specific populations. The term “uveitic glaucoma” is used to describe glaucoma associated with uveitis or ocular inflammation. It is an important, yet underappreciated condition, as uveitis and glaucoma separately account for a substantial proportion of cases of blindness worldwide. Their co-occurrence, however, provides an additional layer of complexity for patients and their treating ophthalmologists. In this publication, we emphasize a “hands-on” medical and surgical approach aimed at educating patients and practitioners with topic sections crafted in a concise, manageable way.

Basic science concepts and disease pathophysiology, including chapters focused on aqueous humor dynamics, disease classification, and normotensive uveitic glaucoma, are thoroughly reviewed. A comprehensive discussion of diagnosis, clinical management, and treatment is also included. The stepladder approach in treating the underlying disease, uveitis, is explained. Other topics of clinical interest, including pediatric uveitic glaucoma, uveitic glaucoma and pregnancy, and off-label medication use provide treatment and management guidance for special patient populations. This textbook is essential for both comprehensive ophthalmologists and specialists looking for more guidance in dealing with this complicated disease.
