“Optical Coherence Tomography in Glaucoma: A Practical Guide” is a book that provides a comprehensive overview of the use of optical coherence tomography (OCT) in glaucoma diagnosis, management, and research. The book covers the basics of OCT imaging and interpretation, as well as the latest advances in technology and clinical applications. It includes chapters on the use of OCT in diagnosing and monitoring glaucoma, evaluating the optic nerve head and retinal nerve fiber layer, and assessing the effect of treatment on the disease. The book also covers the use of OCT in research, including the development of new technologies and the use of OCT for clinical trials. Written by experts in the field, “Optical Coherence Tomography in Glaucoma: A Practical Guide” is a valuable resource for ophthalmologists, glaucoma specialists, and researchers who are interested in using OCT to improve the diagnosis, management, and understanding of glaucoma.

This book focuses on the practical aspects of Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) in glaucoma diagnostics offering important theoretical information along with many original cases. OCT is a non-invasive imaging technique that acquires high-resolution images of the ocular structures. It enables clinicians to detect glaucoma in the early stages and efficiently monitor the disease. Optical Coherence Tomography in Glaucoma features updated information on technical applications of OCT in glaucoma, reviews recently published literature and provides clinical cases based on Cirrus and Spectralis OCT platforms. In addition, newer techniques like event and trend analyses for progression, macular ganglion cell analysis, and OCT angiography are discussed.

This book will serve as a reference for ophthalmologists and optometrists worldwide with a special interest in OCT imaging providing essential guidance on the application of OCT in glaucoma.
