Sydney Eye Hospital Pharmacopoeia
The Sydney Eye Hospital Pharmacopoeia app for Apple iPhone and iPad is now available for download via the iTunes store. The app is the result of a collaboration between clinicians and pharmacists at Sydney Hospital/Sydney Eye Hospital, the Save Sight Institute/University of Sydney, and the Sydney Eye Hospital Foundation. The development of the app was possible thanks to a very generous grant and ongoing support from the Sydney Eye Hospital Foundation. It provides quick and easy access to reference information for medications used in ophthalmic practice including brand names, dosage guidelines, access, adverse reactions and monitoring. A quick access guide to intravitreal drug dilutions is also provided.
This is the first ophthalmic pharmacopoeia app in the world.
The app is available free of charge as an educational tool designed to assist in the care of patients. The app will be available for Android soon. The app can be downloaded from your device by searching for "Sydney Eye Hospital", or by following the link below
You can also access Sydney Eye Hospital's Pharmacopoeia on your desktop by visiting this website.

The NSW ACI Ophthalmology Network has developed The Eye Emergency Manual for use by non-ophthalmic clinicians in emergency settings, and is particularly useful for those in rural areas or in metropolitan hospitals without an ophthalmology service.
