Published by Springer, Prof Clement Tham’s new textbook, “ Primary Angle Closure Glaucoma – A Logical Approach in Management ”, aims to provide the readers with an up-to-date and evidence-based management approach for primary angle closure glaucoma (PACG), which makes effective and safe use of all the interventions currently available.
Many of our faculty members, including Prof Calvin Pang, Dr Li-jia Chen, Dr Carol Cheung, Dr Poemen Chan and Dr Yu-meng Wang, and also numerous renowned international experts for each subject matter, have contributed to this textbook.
Prof Tham writes in the Preface: “… Through our interactions with clinical ophthalmologists from around the globe through these instruction courses, we appreciated the immense hunger for practical knowledge and skills in diagnosing angle closure, tips and pearls in laser and surgical treatments, as well as updates on the latest clinical, epidemiological, and basic science research on angle closure. We have also become aware that angle closure is frequently underdiagnosed, misunderstood, and occasionally mistreated, in some parts of the world. The authors do very much feel the pressing need to bring angle-closure diseases to the attention of the vast ophthalmological fraternity around the world.”
The book is now available from Springer, Amazon, and other major online channels.
