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.
