THE RECENT Atlantic City meetings were noteworthy in at least one important respect. The Association for Research in Ophthalmology and the Section on Ophthalmology of the American Medical Association coordinated their programs so as to meet in the same hall in successive sessions. The first day and a half was devoted to the former and then an equal time to the latter, thus marking a happy and proper union of laboratory and clinical sciences.
The Research Association program was started off with a report on the effect of contact glasses on flow of fluid in the aqueous veins, by K. W. Ascher (Cincinnati). Increase in blood, stagnation of the fluid, and reversal of movement were noted in the vessels, and it was suggested that these contributed to the undesirable side-effects of wearing contact glasses. Then followed an interesting and somewhat surprising report by Gordon S. Christiansen and P. J. Leinfelder
