Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: John W. Chandler, MD, FACS (University of Washington School of Medicine)
Description: The fourth edition of this book is a repository of important information that has been compiled from the world literature. The book is written in a consistent, basic format that facilitates easy usage.
Purpose: The author has devoted enormous effort to gather the information and report it in a standard form. As he did in earlier editions, the author has provided the ophthalmic community with current information on a subject that is difficult to sort out and is sometimes erroneous.
Audience: This reference book is especially important for ophthalmologists, but its existence should also be known by all physicians. This is also an important book for hospital libraries. Regardless of the expertise of physicians, they will frequently encounter patients with ocular complaints caused by the side effects of systemic as well as topical medications.
Features: The book is written in a concise format without illustrations. The reader starts by looking up the drug in the detailed index and then turns to the text page where both the generic and proprietary names are given; the primary use of the drug, its ocular side effects, their clinical significance, and references follow. The last 120 pages of the book list individual ocular symptoms and findings and all known associated drugs.
Assessment: This inexpensive reference book belongs on every ophthalmologist's bookshelf along with the PDR and other frequently used reference texts. A complete list of a patient's medications and this book can quickly assist the busy ophthalmologist in unraveling complex and vague symptoms and signs and their probable causes.

Little scientific data is available on the side effects of drugs in general, and on the eye in particular, because there are many variables in assessing a cause-and-effect relationship and few research dollars available for such studies. This new edition of a guide intended to gather together what is known and help physicians decide whether a visual problem is drug related contains updated data as well as 44 drugs not covered in the third edition. The basic format for each drug or group of drugs includes class, generic name, proprietary name, primary use, ocular side effects, systemic side effects, clinical significance, and references. Thoroughly indexed. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
