Novels by physicians are of two types. They include fiction prepared by physicians who are primarily literary artists, and fiction written by those who are primarily physicians. Of the second type is this novel by Dr. Vecki. His practice in California and perhaps an exciting and varied career form the basis of the story. The book serves a purpose in warning of the insidious onset of glaucoma. The author suggests the importance of early scientific treatment.
