This book is an expansion of an instruction course given by the authors at the American Academy of Ophthalmology with an emphasis on the advances in the basic and clinical science of pediatric glaucoma. The chapters are well laid out, the writing is excellent, and the text is easy to read. The chapters on classification, embryology, and pathogenesis provide a good foundation for understanding this group of disorders. The authors discuss the characteristics and management of virtually all types of pediatric glaucomas. Although the chapters are relatively short, they provide excellent summaries of each condition with the latest references. Advances in medical and surgical treatment are thoroughly discussed, and the latest drug trials in children, filters with antimetabolites, setons, and cyclodestructive procedures are included. The chapter on aphakic and pseudophakic glaucoma is the most comprehensive I have seen. It is a little unusual to devote a chapter to the question of bilateral surgery; however, it is extensively referenced and the authors take a well-balanced approach. It is also nice to see a chapter on the long-term management of children with glaucoma and low vision and the medical services offered to them.
