Clinical Ocular Pharmacology, Second Edition covers the diagnostic and therapeutic clinical procedures in the administration of drugs to the eye. This book is organized into five parts encompassing 35 chapters that evaluate the basic pharmacologic principles that govern the different types of ophthalmic drugs. It addresses the pharmacologic agents useful in the diagnosis and treatment of ocular diseases.
Some of the topics covered in the book are the basic science of ocular pharmacology; clinical administration of ocular drugs; drugs affecting the autonomic nervous system; types of local anesthetics; review of anti-inflammatory drugs; and examination of inhibitors of aqueous formation. Other parts deal with the development of contact lens solution in clinical practice and the pharmacologic management of strabismus. These topics are followed by discussions of the legal basis of using drugs in optometry and the systemic effects of ocular drugs. The concluding part is devoted to the diseases of the optic nerve.
The book can provide useful information to doctors, optometrists, pediatricians, students, and researchers.
