Thoroughly revised and updates, this new edition of Ophthalmic Toxicology retains its uniqueness in covering all aspects of ophthalmic toxicology. With chapters from leading authorities incorporating the latest developments in the field, including a new chapter on the molecular basis of ophthalmic toxicity, this edition covers such topics as:
*the history of ophthalmic toxicology
*specific actions/affinities of ophthalmic poisons to various eye tissues and to animal species
*research methods in vivo and in vitro
*ophthalmic toxicities of representative chemicals via systemic and/or local delivery
*medical treatment of chemical ocular injuries
This one-of-a-kind reference on ophthalmic toxicology will be invaluable to all professionals in academia, industry, clinics, research laboratories, and government agencies.
