The material for this volume was supplied by members of the Department of Ophthalmology of Northwestern University. In it are four articles on cataract surgery and four on neuro-ophthalmology. The first half, which is devoted to cataract, contains chapters on preoperative care, a technique of cataract extraction, postoperative period, and the optical correction of aphakia. Each section is clearly written in words of one syllable, which even the novice can understand. Much of the contents will appear elementary; nevertheless, there are many pertinent suggestions. In the chapter on preoperative preparation, the importance of the art of practice of medicine is reemphasized, and it should be read by all beginners and reviewed by many practitioners. Of particular value to the ophthalmic surgeon is the part dealing with the problems encountered in refraction of the cataractous eye and the discussion of the different types of cataract lenses.
