“The more tools you have in your pocket, the more options you have to treat the individual glaucoma patients that are presented to you because everyone is different.” Dr. Constance Okeke, MD, MSCE
Dr. Constance Okeke’s new book “The Building Blocks of Trabectome Surgery: Patient Selection” shares her extensive experience pioneering micro-incision glaucoma surgery (MIGS). This book provides a step-by-step approach for evaluating a MIGS candidate and is written for specialists and surgeons who want to offer more micro-surgical options for their glaucoma patients.
This book was crafted to reach multiple levels of eye care providers treating glaucoma and provides real cases, extensive full color figures and photos, easy to follow bulleted information and action steps.
Readers have said Dr. Okeke has “compiled the finest source of information to date” and “each page reveals her secrets of glaucoma surgery with pearls gleaned over years of compassionate clinical care.”
Okeke noted she specifically talks about Trabectome in this book because it has some characteristics that make it a very effective tool to use in a wide range of glaucoma patients.
Her ultimate goal is that “this book will make a significant impact in helping prevent blindness by allowing more glaucoma patients to benefit from the Trabectome surgical approach.”
