Antibiotic and chemotherapeutic agents employed for ophthalmic therapy can produce local and systemic toxicity. The type and frequency of these side effects and complications can depend on the agents, the dosage and duration of therapy, and the individual susceptibility.

The routes of administration are recommended on the basis of optimal penetration, minimal toxicity, patient tolerance, and clinical experience.
