11.1. Small-scale preparation of ophthalmic (eye) drops

In noting the document (11) containing advice on this topic produced by WHO’s Programme for the Prevention of Blindness, the Committee was pleased to learn that the guidance provided on preparation and quality control was proving helpful to pharmacists in hospitals in remote areas. Local, small-scale preparation of a limited number of widely used types of eye drops was meeting an important need in the communities concerned.
