This aim of this chapter is to give an insight into commonly prescribed ophthalmic medications used in the management of ophthalmic conditions. The chapter has eight identified sections. All are relevant and applicable to the role of the healthcare practitioners to ensure safe practice. Ophthalmic medications are administered both topically and systemically. Eye medication is prescribed for a specific reason. Due care must be exercised by both the healthcare worker and the patient (NMC 2010). Four selected case studies are given on specific conditions such as blepharitis, conjunctivitis, glaucoma, and contact lens related eye problems. The answers to each activity are given at the end of the chapter. A basic understanding of the anatomy and physiology of the eye is essential.
