The First Congress of the European Ophthalmological Society, held at Athens in 1960, concerned secondary glaucoma. The Proceedings contain a large number of papers on various aspects of secondary glaucoma with discussions by distinguished physicians from many countries. The subject is comprehensively covered with little duplication. The volume will provide the American readers with contemporary European thinking about glaucoma. It will be of greatest value to ophthalmologists who read French and German; however, about 15 articles are in English, and there are English summaries at the end of each report. The papers are primarily clinical, but basic problems also receive consideration. To a certain degree, the papers reflect the character of ophthalmological practice in the various countries represented. Therefore, purchase of this volume is especially recommended for American ophthalmologists planning to visit European clinics.
