This slim volume contains 14 papers delivered at a symposium in Amsterdam on May 15, 1976. Among the highlighted subjects are drug delivery systems, cholinergic drugs, adrenergic drugs, and the indications and goals of therapy. Most of the papers are reviews and contain little new information. However, two papers provide new data about pilocarpine Ocuserts, and two papers describe small clinical trials of new beta-adrenergic blocking drugs. Also included is an update of Redmond Smith's long-term study comparing immediate surgery of newly discovered primary open-angle glaucoma with conventional medical treatment. Overall, the book gives a thorough review of topically applied glaucoma treatment.
