The author has updated his color atlas of the more common ophthalmologic diagnoses with new photographs and a text revision. He points out that it is intended for the busy family physician or medical student who needs to have a ready reference manual rather than wade through a major textbook. In this publication are assembled numerous excellent color photographs that are certainly superior to the black-and-white reproductions found in most eye textbooks. Mr Bedford disclaims any attempt at producing a textbook but does give a brief description and suggested treatment of each entity. He also nicely outlines the rudiments of the examination of the eye, with emphasis on the use of basic examining equipment.

Photographs of the external diseases and injuries are of good quality and would be of obvious help to the nonophthalmologist physician. The
