This book is the summer 1970 volume of the International Ophthalmology Clinic series. Its content reinforces one's opinion that a subscription to the series is well worth the $25 cost for the four volumes.

There were 21 contributors, among them Drs. N. Bronson; R. T. Paton; J. Buxton; C. Dohlman; M. Fine; H. Katzin; H. Kaufman; J. King; A. Maumenee; D. Paton; R. Troutman; and L. Zimmerman.
