The author, well known in Europe and the Continent for his skill as an ophthalmic surgeon, has brought toǵether in this volume the fruits of his wide knowledge and experience. This book is essentially a practical treatise, in which Arruga gives credit to the numerous writers whose methods he describes. A number of his own ingenious instruments and surgical procedures are presented.
After a chapter dealing with the general principles of ocular surgery, Arruga, in a systematic fashion, treats of the surgery of the eyelids, lacrimal apparatus, conjunctiva, cornea, sclera, iris, ciliary body and choroid, lens, extraocular muscles, eyeball, vitreous and orbit and the operative treatment of detachment of the retina, glaucoma and intraocular foreign bodies. The chapters dealing with the lacrimal passages, cataract extraction and detachment of the retina are outstanding, in the opinion of the reviewer ; but the remaining sections are valuable.
It is only to be expected
