A unique source of information for eye care professionals ...

Many ophthalmic and systemic drugs have adverse effects on the eyes. EMedInfo is a unique database of the Ocular Adverse Reactions of virtually all drugs currently available, contained within a simple and intuitive user interface

EMedInfo also contains a series of expanded data sheets that provide prescribing information on all drugs currently available to optometrists as well as a wide range of resources relating to prescribing.

EMedInfo has been compiled by Professor John Lawrenson and Professor David Thomson (with a lot of help from many others). The database took over 8 years to compile, drawing on information from original data sheets and thousands of published papers. The information is constantly updated so that users can download the very latest information.
