This very popular textbook of physiology has gone through thirteen editions. It has always had an excellent section on the physiology of the eye, and, for this reason, it should be well known to ophthalmologists. It is somewhat regrettable that in this edition the more recent advances in the physiology of vision have not been adequately dealt with. Instead of basic physiology half a page is devoted to ocular hygiene, which has no place in a book of this sort. It is to be hoped that in the next edition the section on physiology of the eye will be more adequately revised.
