The expanding scope of our knowledge of the eye and vision has taxed the writers of general textbooks and led to the proliferation of subtexts on different diseases (eg, glaucoma, cataract), groups of diseases (eg, uveitis, infections) and forms of treatment (eg, anti-inflammatory therapy) in the broad field of ophthalmology. In special areas of examination, refraction and perimetry have commanded special volumes. Some years ago, Berens and Zuckerman authored Diagnostic Examination of the Eye, but this is no longer in print. In the meantime new techniques and refinements of old methods have appeared. The time was opportune for a compendium of these modern methods for those entering the field of ophthalmology and for those needing supplementation of their life-long skills in examination.
