Editorial Reviews

Richard G. Fiscella
This multiauthored book reviews fundamental concepts in ocular pharmacology, the pharmacology of ocular drugs by class (e.g., cycloplegics. mydriatics, anti-infectives, irrigating solutions), ocular drugs used in clinical practice (e.g., pupil dilation, neuro-ophthalmology, conjunctival diseases, corneal diseases), and a section on toxicology. This book provides a current resource on ophthalmic medications for healthcare professionals. It combines basic and clinical ocular pharmacology, especially helpful for those limited to a single general reference text. The stated audience is to be the student and practitioner optometrist and ophthalmologist. This is an especially useful text for optometrists because of their expanding role as primary care practitioners. It should benefit anyone who wishes information on clinical ocular pharmacology, including pharmacy students, ophthalmic nurses, or technicians. This is a very well-organized book, starting in section one with the basic fundamentals of pharmacology such as ocular drug delivery and ocular drug formulations. The next section reviews the pharmacology of specific classes of agents such as the cycloplegics, antiglaucoma drugs, anti-inflammatory drugs, ocular irrigating solutions, and contact lens care products. The third section reviews ocular drugs as used in clinical practice, including chapters on eyelid disorders, lacrimal diseases, conjunctiva diseases, corneal diseases, allergies, uveitis, postoperative cataract, retinal diseases, and medical management of glaucoma. The last section is a review of ocular toxicology, including drug interactions, ocular effects of systemic drugs, and life-threatening systemic emergencies. The authorshave succeeded in compiling an excellent ocular pharmacology resource for those requiring an informative, thorough, and easily read text. Very few ocular pharmacology books combine basic ocular pharmacology principles and relevant clinical practice information in a single and well-referenced text.

Booknews
A text for both students and practitioners on the use of ocular drugs in patients with either acute or chronic ocular diseases for which drug therapy is indicated, as well as in asymptomatic patients who need only routine care. The volume is divided into four parts: fundamental concepts in ocular pharmacology; pharmacology of ocular drugs; ocular drugs in clinical practice; and toxicology. This revised and updated edition is also substantially reorganized, e.g., using therapeutic rather than the classic pharmacologic drug classifications for the chapters in Part II. Extensive references. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
