The eighth edition of this review of current literature includes articles on diabetic vascular lesions, by Norman Ashton; the genesis of myopia, by E. Kraupa, and the biochemistry of lysozymes and its clinical significance in ophthalmology, by H. Schumacher, and a review of the literature on uveitis, by J. François and E. DeVos. The only paper in English is by Ashton.
This is an excellent review of all that is known about diabetic vascular lesions. Except for the article on uveitis the elite feature of the other manuscripts is the presentation of the material with emphasis on the subject rather than the author. When one wishes to review a subject he is usually not primarily concerned with the author in the text.
Most of the articles which appear in Advances in Ophthalmology are similar to those found in physiological reviews and are excellent for bringing one up to date in
