Soon after the first edition of this book was published its reputation as an outstanding authoritative work on medical ophthalmology was built from the laudatory reviews which appeared in our journals. While some chapters were not as good as others, which is invariably the case in texts of multiple authorship, the general level was high, and in those subjects which were given adequate documentation one could always count on an excellent treatment of the subject.
In this new edition some of those subjects which had not received adequate coverage before are now brought up to date. While much that is new has been added, the book has been tailored to keep it down to its original size. The only objection which can be raised is to the relegation of a selected bibliography to the back of the book where it is difficult to locate.
