Could someone direct me to glossaries specializing in the surgical treatment of cataract and glaucoma in the English to French pair ?

After much research I have found little helpful URLs so far.

Thanks a lot.

Thanks Michael and Sylvain Jan 30, 2004

Havn't had a chance to look up your URL's yet... Very specialized glossaries are still luxury items on the net. You just don't find them. It's easier to work your way into a specialized French university lecture and then go fish out the equivalent descriptions in an English medschool document... one language at a time. Not fast but you end up understanding a little more.

Maybe not always easier but much more certain. Glossaries or dictionaries can be invaluable for pointing you (one hopes) in the right direction, but I strongly urge that medical terms be checked against such native sources as Cécile mentions. Bad translation is too common in medicine, even in reputable bilingual dictionaries, and it is the last place it should be tolerated (okay, maybe nuclear power plant translation is last, but you get the idea).
