Abstract

Drug-induced ocular side effects are described according to recent reports from the literature, the National Registry of Drug-Induced Ocular Side Effects, the World Health Organization (WHO) and the FDA. Adverse events are categorised as certain, probable/likely, possible, unlikely, conditional/unclassified and unassessable/unclassifiable where indicated. Ocular side effects of clinical importance are highlighted with guidelines for recognition, reporting and treatment of adverse drug reactions (ADRs). The current and future status of pharmacovigilance in ocular toxicology is addressed.
