Ocular physiology is presented from a clinical viewpoint in this new treatise completed after the death of the senior author. The book is quite British in that there is almost no reference in the bibliography to any publications outside of Great Britain. The writing is concise and not as detailed or inclusive as in the comparable textbook by Adler. It is, therefore, of less value than the latter as a reference work but, on the other hand, can be more readily read and assimilated by the graduate student preparing for his board examination. Illustrations are limited to original drawings. Two interesting features in the back of the book are a list of Greek roots of important words and a list of ophthalmological eponyms.
