About the Author

Dr. Quigley was born in St. Louis and is a graduate of Harvard College and Johns Hopkins Medical School. After ophthalmic residency at the Wilmer Institute, he did a fellowship at the Bascom Palmer Eye Institute, Miami. He became the A. Edward Maumenee Professor of Ophthalmology in 1994, directing both the Glaucoma Center of Excellence and the Dana Center for Preventive Ophthalmology at Wilmer. He was a founding member of the American Glaucoma Society. He was elected to 5 year terms as chief executive officer of the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology (ARVO) and Editor-in-Chief of Investigative Ophthalmology and Visual Science. He has published over 350 peer-reviewed articles, and his reports are the most cited in the ophthalmic literature over the last 30 years (Archives of Ophthalmology, 2007). He has been honored with the Friedenwald Award by ARVO, the Doyne Medal by the Oxford Ophthalmological Congress, the Leslie Dana Medal by the St. Louis Society for the Blind, awards from the European Society of Ophthalmology (Prix Jules Francois), Ophthalmological Society of Scotland (Mackenzie Medal), Australian Society of Ophthalmology (Gregg Medal), Irish Ophthalmological Society (Mooney Medal), and the New York Academy of Sciences (Lewis Rudin Prize). He has given 35 named lectures, including the 66th Edward Jackson Lecture (American Academy of Ophthalmology). Dr. Quigley has trained 55 glaucoma clinician--scientists who practice in the U.S. and worldwide. His research has improved the early diagnosis of glaucoma and has developed instruments and techniques to identify glaucoma damage better. His investigations demonstrated the degree of glaucoma damage that precedes present detection methods. He was the first to report on long-term success with laser iridotomy. His suturing technique for trabeculectomy has been widely adopted. He has participated in pioneering studies of the epidemiology, morbidity and progression rate of glaucoma and other eye disease in American, African, Asian, and Hispanic populations, serving as a consultant to the World Health Organization. He conceptualized new roles for iris and choroidal volume change as risk factors in angle closure glaucoma. In the laboratory, he has demonstrated successful gene therapy to protect retinal ganglion cells from experimental glaucoma, and developed glaucoma models in monkeys, rats and mice.

Excellent!

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!

I bought this for my friend who is dealing with Glaucoma in Busan, Korea. She loves it because it starts each chapter with summary points and describes those points in detail.

Pros: Informative if you are just beginning to learn about glaucoma. Not many alternatives that have a wealth of information in one reference.

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.

The information was very clear and hopeful. Also the chapters about living with low vision, should that happen, were realistic. It reinforced what my Dr. told me and was in language I could understand.

As a long term Glaucoma patient, I found this book to be most informative and helpful in explaining the genesis and treatment of this disease. There is clearly no one more qualified to explain the etiology of Glaucoma and Dr. Quigley does a masterful job informing patients and their families of what they need to know to live with this chronic ailment. I am fortunate to have Dr. Quigley as my ophthalmologist and can personally attest to his experience and incredible depth of knowledge of Glaucoma. I highly recommend anyone with Glaucoma, or who is a Glaucoma suspect, read this book. It is a great resource and reference which will serve to complement the course of treatment. There is no better patient than an informed patient and I am grateful for Dr. Quigley's efforts to educate Glaucoma patients around the world in order that they have the necessary tools to manage their disease. This is a must read!
