During a closed international glaucoma symposium in Friedrichsruhe, Germany, the most current scientific results on the pathogenesis and risk factors of glaucoma were discussed. The progress which has been made in glaucoma detection and treatment of new insights into the pathomechanisms of the glaucomas are summarized in this symposium volume in 25 contributions. This book, which includes topics such as compliance, medical therapy, wound healing, genetic risk factors, disk damage in relation to visual field loss, disk hemorrhages, intraocular pressure, low blood pressure, retinal ischemia, and treatment of causal factors in glaucoma, will appeal to ophthalmologists and particularly to glaucoma specialists
