The second edition of Diagnostic Examination of the Eye, by Joshua Zuckerman, is a skillfully organized, systematic, and encyclopedic volume, that deals with most diagnostic facets of ophthalmology. The author proposes to provide a logical, step-by-step approach to the gathering of information necessary for a complete picture of the ophthalmic patient's condition. Many diagnostic procedures are meticulously detailed, and useful methods of recording, correlating, and interpreting the data are described. Myriads of supplemental information, such as driver license requirements and Workmen's Compensation tables, as well as detailed descriptions of the more elaborate diagnostic techniques, such as tonography, applanation tonometry, and various tests for ocular muscle function are included in an orderly fashion. Practically every diagnostic instrument known to ophthalmology is described, including a photograph in many instances, and the technique of examination with the particular instrument is discussed concisely.
