This brief textbook treats of ophthalmology from the point of view of familiarizing the physician with the essential diseases of the eye that he will be called on to take care of in the course of his daily routine. The subjects covered are essentially conjunctival inflammations, the commoner inflammations, iritis, syphilis of the eye, cataract, glaucoma, the commoner tumors of the eye, the type of retinitis seen with general disease, and the various ocular palsies. For the scope intended, the book is quite sufficient. It does not discuss refraction or surgery and for that reason it would not serve as a textbook for the beginning ophthalmologist. It compares favorably with similar books on the subject.
