Drug-Induced Ocular Side Effects and Ocular Toxicology, edited by Prof O. Hockwin, is the result of the Fifth International Symposium of Drug-Induced Ocular Side Effects and Ocular Toxicology, held in 1986 in Bonn, West Germany, and organized by Professor Hockwin. It represents contributions from a number of investigators working in the area of ocular toxicology. The reports cover a broad range of subjects, including the regulations governing toxicology testing on medical products in the European community, a report of the National Registry of Drug-Induced Ocular Side Effects, clinical case studies, methods for investigating ocular toxicity, in vivo animal toxicology studies, and toxicology studies on various in vitro model systems.
"... it represents a heroic effort in bringing together a wide range of topics and research perspectives."
Most reports covering the occurrence of ocular toxicity in humans were restricted to untoward effects of therapeutic agents or preservatives rather than the effects of
