Somewhat paradoxically, the average ophthalmologist has little contact with the blind. The reason for this, of course, is that by the time an individual is blind, the ophthalmologist, having exhausted all known forms of therapy, is powerless to help.
One still is left with the moral responsibility of trying to return these sightless people to as normal a life as possible. Dr. Case has provided a most useful volume outlining the impact of blindness upon the psyche of the individual and describing techniques of rehabilitation and social readjustment. He has also added chapters on administration and operational principles in organizing groups to care for the blind.
