Visual Loss in Glaucoma: Contributions and Indications for Fluorescein Angiography

Spaeth GL


Grune and Stratton,

New York, 1977

The first (and from my point of view still the best) book on vascular contributions to glaucoma, including a classification into 1) glaucoma in which the basic cause for nerve damage is compression of the nerve cells by high intraocular pressure, 2) glaucoma in which the pressure in the eye causes and insufficiency of blood flow to the optic nerve, and 3) “focal ischemic glaucoma” in which there is an abnormality of blood flow, not primarily related to intraocular pressure
