Written by international authorities in ocular toxicology, including the Founder of The National Registry of Drug-Induced Side Effects and its current Director, this essential resource provides the clinically relevant information you need to effectively diagnose and manage herbal, chemical, and drug-related ocular problems. Comprehensive coverage of all drugs’ generic and trade drug names, primary uses, ocular and systemic side effects, and clinical significance make this book - like its best-selling predecessor, Drug-Induced Ocular Side Effects - the ideal reference for quick, on-the-spot consultation.
Leaders in the field provide need-to-know information on all aspects of ocular toxicology—all in one concise reference.
Data from the National Registry of Drug Induced Ocular Side-Effects (Casey Eye Institute, Portland, OR) and the World Health Organization (Uppsala, Sweden) help you recognize and avoid drug-induced ocular side effects.
A highly templated format makes retrieval of essential knowledge quick and easy.
A wealth of full-color photographs provide vivid, visual diagnostic guidance.
The latest information on approved medications helps you stay up to date and provide state-of-the-art care.
Extensive coverage of principles of therapy, ocular drug delivery, methods to evaluate drug-induced visual side effects, and the role of electrophysiology and psychophysics gives you the knowledge you need to manage any challenge in ocular toxicology
Authoritative guidance on ocular drugs and their use in pregnancy helps you safely manage the unique needs of these patients.
The inclusion of the WHO classification system helps you determine whether a particular side effect is certain, probable, or likely to occur.
