This well known little book is now in its fifth edition. The fourth edition came out in 1943 and was reprinted three times, a fact which attests to its popularity. The character of the book has not been changed, but the material has been brought up to date. Recent views on the biologic determination of refractive errors has induced the author to regard the significance of myopia from a different point of view. The book covers all phases of refraction, from physiologic optics to the manufacture of glasses.
