This monograph contains the papers presented at the drug symposium held by the American Academy of Ophthalmology and Otolaryngology together with the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology in Dallas, 1974. All ten papers are of interest to the practicing ophthalmologist. Some of the papers summarize in an excellent and concise form the present state of the arts and certain aspects of ocular therapeutics. In this category fall the papers on local anesthetics by P. P. Ellis, treatment of viral infections by H. Kaufman, and management of bacterial corneal ulcers by T. Pettit. Other papers summarize modern aspects of ocular therapy in a scientific and most sophisticated manner, such as the review on adrenergic therapy of open angle glaucoma by Marvin Sears. A few of the papers report on new findings or the results of new and unusual treatments, such as the contribution on immunosuppressive therapy by Robert Burns
