This hardy perennial, initiated in 1901 (as the Year Book of Eye, Ear, Nose and Throat), has served the purpose of reminding the ophthalmologist of the more important articles he has read during the past year and supplying him with highlights of articles he may have missed. In addition, the juxtaposition of related articles helps to put things into perspective and, in controversial areas, to know where the combatants stand.
The 1985 Year Book of Ophthalmology has 14 chapters, seven of which represent anatomic groupings. In addition, there are sections on pediatric ophthalmology; vision, refraction, and contact lenses; glaucoma; neuroophthalmology; medical ophthalmology and drug therapy; and surgery; basic sciences, injuries, and a miscellaneous category are also included. Eleven of the chapters contain vignettes or discussions that add a point of focus to the ensuing material. Some of these, such as Putterman's discussion on congenital nasolacrimal duct obstruction, are basically summaries
