Featured Books

"This may be the first and only book concentrating on the single most important consideration in the field of
glaucoma, specifically the optic nerve."

“This book has two purposes: 1) to educate all those with glaucoma about glaucoma, so they have the best chance to preserve their vision and their health, and 2) to educate readers about how to care for oneself well.”

"The first (and from my point of view still the best) book on vascular contributions to glaucoma."

"A book in some ways similar to that written by my father , Edmund B. Spaeth “Principles and Practice of Ophthalmic Surgery", Lea and Febiger., Philadelphia; Four Editions in the
1930’s and 40’s."

“This is a collection of writings by Lena Link Spaeth, and 19 of her descendants. It includes poems, short stories, essays and editorials. As a collection of writings from one family over 4 generations it is unique.
