To the Editor.  —It was with great interest that we read the article "Management of Perioperative Hypertension Using Sublingual Nifedipine" by Adler et al.1 We at King Khaled Eye Specialist Hospital, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, have been utilizing a similar perioperative protocol for our elderly hypertensive patients for the past two years with very effective results. Our findings have been similar to those expressed in Adler and colleagues' article.
