    Great book!, April 28, 2010

    Love this book! It has everything you’d want to know about glaucoma and especially how to live with the disease. I also have Edith’s previous book, Coping With Glaucoma, but this one has much more information in it. Everything your doctor never tells you!

    Although Edith isn’t a medical professional, she is a long-time glaucoma patient and has thoroughly researched the subject. The book is well documented and indexed and a great resource for patients, family, friends and anyone else interested in learning more about the “silent thief of sight”.

    Edith Marks follows up her helpful earlier published book, Coping With Glaucoma with her new publlication., May 30, 2010

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    Edith Marks has exceeded her previous book, Coping With Glaucoma with her updated, detailed new book, Glaucoma-Patient to Patient. The new book is a valuable source for those of us with Glaucoma issues. The text is filled with up-to-date information, answering all those questions we are afraid to ask our surgeons and those which our surgeons are just too busy to answer at appointment time. Armed with the information in Marks’ book, we can approach our eye care with the knowledge we beed to go forth and proceed with treatments and surgeries required. This book assists patients in their quest to save their vision and pursue the best course of action. Ms. Marks’ book is a no-nonsense addition to self-help books on Glaucoma and is densely packed with information in over 500 hundred pages. The text is small so those with sight issues may want to use a magnifier. Thanks to Ms. Marks for her service to patients in need of strategy and knowledge about their disease and how to cope going forward with the courage that knowledge can provide.
