The book describes the techniques for all devices in detail, which are explained further in accompanying videos. After covering the basic techniques, the book provides extensive notes on modifications that may be required in various case presentations such as congenital glaucoma, post-penetrating keratoplasty with extensive peripheral synechiae, and procedure through pars plans etc. Complications and their management are subsequently addressed. The book is an essential guide to help surgeons match patients to the most suitable device, and to support patients from preparation through post-operative care.
