Only a careful diagnosis of glaucoma will lead to appropriate therapy. In this context, gonioscopy is a very important differential diagnostic tool that permits assessment of the anterior chamber angle and classification of glaucoma as a basis for specific treatment.
This book clearly explains how to perform gonioscopy to best effect. The anatomy of the chamber angle is systematically described, and the impact of age, developmental disorders, and pathologies on the chamber angle is explained. Particular attention is focused on primary and secondary open-angle and angle-closure glaucomas. In each case, the role of gonioscopy in evaluating the chamber angle is described with the help of many photographs and illustrations. The importance of knowledge of the chamber angle for laser treatment and surgery is explained, and the impact of medications is discussed.
Gonioscopy is a straightforward technique that is easy to learn and this examination delivers useful information. This book provides the practitioner with all the information required to use the technique effectively in diagnosis and treatment.
