    Standard List of Medicines, Equipment, Instruments and Optical Supplies for District Level Eye Care Services. Pp 16. Available from Allen Foster, International Centre for Eye Health, 11 Bath Street, London EC1V 9EL. Updated annually.

    This is a list prepared by the task force of the Partnership Committee of Non Governmental Development Organisations involved in eye care and prevention of blindness. This 16 page booklet lists the essential equipment, instruments, and supplies which might be required for providing secondary level eye care, particularly in a developing country. Although the authors do not claim that the list is comprehensive it covers a very wide area, ranging from materials for the local production of eye drops to teaching materials in its 10 headings.

    For each item a supplier is provided and an approximate price in US$ is given.

    This list has been produced to assist project managers and medical personnel who are involved in providing eye care services and will be updated annually. In its present form it provides a lot of very useful information. With feedback over time from consumers in the field it should become an increasingly valuable resource.
