Approximately three dozen medications have been associated with retinal toxicity, and it is important to be aware of such associations. Several medications, such as acetazolamide and latanoprost, are commonly prescribed by the ophthalmologist. Most of the other medications are commonly administered by the patient's primary physician. When assessing any patient for a retinal disturbance, it is imperative to question the patient regarding the use of systemic medications. This is especially important as more and more medications are brought to the market each year.
