This handbook consists of two parts; in the first half the authors discuss the basic fundamentals of ocular therapeutics, including the physiologicals, pharmacologicals and clinical aspects of antibiotic therapy, glaucoma treatment, and the application of steroids in ophthalmology. These basic concepts of treatment are extremely well covered and should be indispensable for the beginning ophthalmologist or those still in residency training programs. This first half of the book will not become out-dated very rapidly because it deals with sound fundamental principles of ophthalmic treatment that do not change appreciably from year to year.
