Abstract

Adverse drug reaction reports were compiled from the National Registry of Drug-Induced Ocular Side Effects, Casey Eye Institute, Portland, Oregon, USA; the United States Food and Drug Administration, Rockville, Maryland; the World Health Organization, Uppsala, Sweden; and a Medline literature review of the past 50 years. The reported side effects of mydriatics, cycloplegics, benzodiazepines, tetracyclines, iodine, topical anesthetics, medications used for hemostasis, non-steroidal antiinflammatory drugs, steroids, antibiotics, and artificial tears are described. Physicians should be aware of the side-effect profile and current industry standards for medications used in corneal refractive surgery, including off-label uses. Guidelines are provided for some classes of medications.
