This book provides a list of concise extemporaneous ophthalmic preparations, and standardizes the formulation of the products by suggesting specific strength, route of administration, appropriate vehicle, and method of preparation. Pharmaceutical industries have greatly expanded their share of ophthalmic drugs in recent years. However, physicians and pharmacists are frequently called to prepare sterile products intended for ophthalmic use due to lack of availability of licensed drugs in the market.
