    This review is from: What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About(TM) Glaucoma: The Essential Treatments and Advances That Could Save Your Sight (Paperback)
    Last week I was told that I had a form of secondary glaucoma. This was not totally unexpected, but it was still a shock: enough of a shock that I couldn’t think of any sensible questions to ask the ophthalmologist who told me. Still, as he wasn’t the ophthalmologist who diagnosed it, he may not have been able to answer some of my questions anyway. So, I left his office in a state of shock but determined to find out more about this `sneak thief of sight’.

    This book was one of the first I was able to acquire, and I found it contains a lot of valuable information. With its help, I was able to differentiate types of glaucoma, read up on the treatment I’ve been prescribed and start work on a list of questions for my treating specialists. It was sobering to read that the common thread among all glaucoma is damage to the optic nerve and that there are more than forty different types of glaucoma, not of all of which are associated with raised intraocular pressure. It was discomfiting to read that the damage caused by glaucoma cannot be reversed. It was frightening to realise that most (but not all) forms of glaucoma have no symptoms or cause no change in vision until late in the course of the disease.

    It is not possible to absorb all of the information contained within this book on one reading, nor will it all be equally relevant to all glaucoma sufferers. While the resource information contained in the book is especially useful to readers in North America, most of the information will be relevant to readers elsewhere.

    I recommend this book to those who want, or need, to know more about glaucoma. For sufferers, no book can substitute for specialist care. But the information in this book may well assist you in working with your specialist to manage your own care in an informed and optimal way.

    This book was recommended by my ophthamologist, and I found it extremely thorough, readable and well-organized. It answered many of my questions, and raised others I hadn’t thought about. I continue to use it as a reference. It was written 6 yeard ago, which I considered a negative, but unfortunately not much has changed in the intervening years concerning treatment of the disease.
