Abstract

To the Editor:  The letter of Dr. Ralph W. Danielson in the May, 1964, issue of the Archives of Ophthalmology (71:756-57, 1964) should also be framed, hung, and read by practicing ophthalmologists every month, as he recommends doing with Dr. A. E. Sloane's editorial "Visual Function is Not a Number" appearing in the October, 1962, issue (Arch Ophthal 68:440, 1962).It seems to me, however, Dr. Danielson has stressed a less prevalent problem and given only a few lines to one of much greater magnitude and of much greater import in "keeping our noses clean." I refer, of course, to the selling of glasses by ophthalmologists.That all types of surgeons are, in the majority, both able and honest can be taken for granted. It is equally evident that the need for and timing of any surgery depend on diagnosis and judgment, which then comprise the opinion of the surgeon.
