5.0 out of 5 stars ... found the clinical applications in this book to be easily accessible and something I can utilize when evaluating glaucoma ..
Reviewed in the United States on May 3, 2017I found the clinical applications in this book to be easily accessible and something I can utilize when evaluating glaucoma patients who are ready for cataract surgery or progressing under traditional therapy. In this book, Dr. Okeke lays a framework for any provider to establish whether a patient is a good or sub-optimal candidate for trabectome, but in doing so, delivers so many clinical pearls, it will make you re-evaluate how you systematically examine your daily glaucoma patients. It is an excellent reference for trabectome, MIGS, and glaucoma care in general. ~Cris Kuc
