This is a practical treatise on the surgical treatment of cataract as carried out in the Institute of Ophthalmology of Dr. Gamma Pinto in Lisbon. It concerns the author's technic primarily, rather than a review of the literature. There are a brief chapter on the embryology and anatomy of the lens and good chapters on the indications for operation for the usual type of cataract and for various atypical forms. The operations are well illustrated with photographs and drawings. There is a good section on postoperative complications and their treatment.
