All you have to do is read the back cover of this book (click on 'search inside this book') to discover that Dr. Quigley is at the forefront of his field with decades of experience, tens of thousands of successful procedures performed, an impressive list of national and international awards and accomplishments, and cutting edge research at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine.
This book is for the patient who may have no idea what glaucoma is, who wants to understand testing for glaucoma, who has been diagnosed with glaucoma and wants a thorough explanation, who wants to compare and evaluate treatment options, or who has virtually any question about the disease.
Dr. Quigley's compassion for his patients comes through in his down to earth descriptions and explanations which can be UNDERSTOOD EASILY, especially with the support of a wide array of photos, diagrams, and website suggestions.
I have been a glaucoma patient for many years and wish I had been able to read Dr. Quigley's book when I was first diagnosed. Hands down, this is the best, most comprehensive book on the market. It will calm your initial fears with explanations and options so you can take action to prevent vision loss.
If you want to buy one reference that answers every possible question you could have concerning glaucoma- THIS IS THE BOOK FOR YOU!
on the subject. This book is one of the best presentations on this subject that
I have encountered. I would recommend this book for all those interested in this subject.
My name is Romar R. Vallory, I am a brazilian ophthalmologist and I have just finished to read your book " What Every Patient Should Know" and the book is very good and I would like to congratulations you by the way you have written the book and I am sure that it will help the patients understand their disease and helps ophthalmologist to know the right way to talk to patients about glaucoma.
Thank you for your book and your work about glaucoma

Cons: Since I've read a variety of references, I did not learn much. The book could benefit from having a good editor to correct grammatical errors, to improve organization, and reduce redundancy.
My guess is that patients who read this book will come away wishing that they had been able to read it when they were first diagnosed. Certainly that was my reaction. A long-time glaucoma patient, I felt that I was only able to become an active participant in my care after having read the book. Quite simply I didn't know enough to know what questions I needed to ask. Now I do. It is hard to convey how helpful that is, both from an emotional as well as a cognitive perspective.
