This monograph eminently fills a great void in published texts on the theory and practice of photocoagulation. Certainly this mode of therapy has come of age, but not since Meyer-Schwickerath's text appeared in 1959 as a primer of photocoagulation, has an up-to-date review appeared. Published separately, in soft cover form, as a monograph extracted from the Bulletin of the Belgian Ophthalmological Society, this work should achieve the status of a standard reference work in this rapidly developing field for the forseeable future.
In Professor Francois' usual comprehensive and lucid manner the reader is introduced first to the history of the development of light coagulation in ophthalmology, followed by a useful description of the photocoagulators currently available. The body of the monograph then deals in depth, amply illustrated, with the histological response to photocoagulation in each of the anatomical segments of the eye. This experimental survey is amplified by much detailed
