Havener’s Ocular Pharmacology | 7th Edition

90,00 excl. VAT


The rapidity of change in medicine and medical therapy has only accelerated since 1983. Many new classes of drugs are available since the last edition, including the prostaglandin analogs, vascular endothelial growth factor inhibitors, and Rho-kinase inhibitors. At the same time, many older drugs are now rarely or never used.

The goal of this text is to help frame the old and the new in ocular pharmacology for physicians, optometrists, and students of pharmacology and visual science. Our hope is that this book will serve as a guide to current medications and also provide a framework to aid the reader in properly positioning new therapeutic options as they become available.
