This publication embodies the proceedings of the South African Ophthalmological Society for 1962. It contains seven papers and two short reports—one on a visit to St. John's Hospital in Jerusalem and another on the Delhi Meeting of the International Congress.
The principal paper, read by Mr. D. P. Choyce, of London, was entitled "The Development and Uses of All-Acrylic Anterior Chamber Implants." He advocated this type of prosthesis, and suggested the use of a built-in stenopeic aperture to obviate additional spectacle correction.
In the discussion of a paper on orbital tumors by Townsend it was brought out that hydatid cysts of the orbit are the principal cause of unilateral proptosis in Capetown.
In a review of some 300 cases of squint, Van Selm pointed out that vertical deviations do not "correct themselves" and that multiple operations are frequently necessary if fusion is to be achieved.
