This book comprises an integrated review of ocular therapeutics across all relevant fields. It addresses the real-world requirements of ophthalmologists, pharmacists and optometrists, as observed through working alongside these practitioners for two decades. Knowledge surrounding agents used in ophthalmic practice has, historically, been scattered. The book facilitates understanding of ocular drug therapy by compiling all key aspects of the pharmacology, toxicology, pharmaceutical science, ocular biochemistry and cell biology of these agents. Chapters detail drug transfer across barriers, systemic toxicity of topically applied drugs, autonomic drugs used for diagnostics, as well as anti-inflammatory, antiallergic, glaucoma and antimicrobial therapies, and avenues for the development of new ocular drugs. Applications of extemporaneously prepared formulations are described to inform day-to-day clinical practice. The use of mucoadhesive polymers in tear substitutes, ocular drug delivery systems, stem cell therapy, pharmacogenomics and antiangiogenic ocular chemotherapy are also explored. The book also provides insights from drugs of herbal origin, and a historical perspective on drugs for ocular use. Practicing and resident ophthalmologists, optometrists, pharmacists, nursing professionals, scholars in ocular drug research and students will equally benefit from this comprehensive guide.

Ocular Therapeutics: Eye on New Discovery focuses on emerging areas in ocular research, from new approaches to dry eye to gene therapy in the management of retinal diseases. This comprehensive book features more than 25 chapters of information that will be vital for ocular investigators and ophthalmologists bringing them new information on promising therapeutics. It is the intent of this book to provide not only information on current approaches to treatment, but also in giving the reader a greater understanding as to what may become available for treating a number of important eye diseases. Each chapter features some new aspect of treatment that holds great promise for the future. The approach has been to concentrate on those areas of ocular diseases that are more prevalent. It also features new insight for drug delivery and for managing devasting diseases, such as macula edema and glaucoma, two of the leading causes of blindness in the United States. This book will serve as an important resource as it contains a number of relevant references highlighted for their importance to the field. New investigators will be able to obtain an historical perspective for each of the topics and to develop an understanding of the new research directions that are underway. Ocular Therapeutics: Eye on New Discovery is more than a reference book, as it also provides an important glimpse into the near future. * Contains information that is vital for ocular investigators and ophthalmologists bringing them new information on promising therapeutics. * Provides not only information on current approaches to treatment, but also gives the reader a greater understanding as to what may become available for treating a number of important eye diseases. * Historical perspective for each of the topics as well as an important glimpse into the near future to develop an understanding of the new research directions underway. * New insight for drug delivery and for managing devastating diseases, such as macula edema and glaucoma, two of the leading causes of blindness in the United States

Excerpt from Ophthalmic Therapeutics When we first took our chairs in that institution, there were few indications for remedies associated with definite lesions of the eye; our cases were diagnosticated, and then carefully examined at all points for indications of the remedy, and from time to time groups of remedies have become associated with definite lesions and characteristic local indications recognized.

The most up-to-date therapeutic reference available worldwide, Ocular Therapeutics combines pharmacology & the clinical application of medications used in ophthalmology to provide ophthalmologists & eye care practitioners the valuable information needed to treat ocular conditions. Current concepts in medical therapy are reviewed for all common & many rare eye diseases. With this book, physicians can identify the signs & symptoms of eye diseases & administer the most current therapy. Ocular Therapeutics presents many treatment modalities, including new, controversial, & possible future regimens. Many practical tips are provided, such as solutions not to mix, particular points to watch when applying painful medications, & where to obtain rare medications. This comprehensive resource is divided into two sections. The first consists of 10 chapters devoted to the pharmacology of drugs used in ophthalmology. These chapters establish a foundation of knowledge by offering background information on drug agents & medications, as well as their use in daily practice & mechanism of action. The second section follows through with 16 clinically based chapters, providing descriptions of disease entities involving the eye & adnexa, grouped according to anatomical location, & relates a short discussion on etiology with practical suggestions for rational treatments.
Pharmacology and Clinical Application
Author: Paul U. Fechner,Klaus D. Teichmann
Roots of the theory and practice of ocular pharmacology may be traced to the ancient Mesopotamian code of Hammurabi and then to several papyri reflecting the clinical interests of the Egyptians. The evolution of its art and science was irregularly paced until the nineteenth century when Kohler, in 1884, proved the anesthetic effect of cocaine on the cornea, and when Fraser, Laquer, Schmiedeberg, Meyer, and others studied the pharmacology of the autonomic nervous system by way of observations of the pupil. Advances in the past few decades have been nothing short of explosive. How can the student, physician, or basic research scientist stay in touch with these electrifying studies? To help with the answer to this question, the authors set as their goal the development of increased understanding so that the student, research scientist, and ophthalmologist can cope with the latest discoveries. The authors want to narrow what appears to be an ever-increasing gap between basic science and ophthalmology. The basic aspects of pharmacology have been presented in light of the natural physiology. In this regard, while distinctions among endogenous mechanisms, drug effects, and the pathogenesis of disease are to be separately recognized, appreciation must be given to the concept that both the desirable and unwanted manifestations or functions caused by either disease or drugs must very often represent a quantitative change in normal metabolic pathways.
