This book was written to give the general practitioner an outline of the modern practice of ophthalmology, so that he may better interpret reports sent to him by the ophthalmologist to whom he refers cases. It is really a short textbook of ophthalmology written by a number of well known British ophthalmologists.

The first five chapters deal with the anatomy, pathology, physiology and methods of examination of the eye. Ocular therapeutics is considered briefly. The remainder of the book treats of various diseases of the eye under anatomic headings. Each section is brought up to date, and there is a short bibliography at the end of most sections. The book is a useful addition to the present texts intended for the general practitioner, and may perhaps be of value to medical students.
