This booklet is merely a sketch introductory to a much larger work on a similar subject which the author, an eye physician, expects to publish soon. He presents his thoughts and investigations and a few new definitions on what he is pleased to call "the raw material of vision," carrying his ideas on light through the nature and source, the vision factory, and the way it operates. In language almost simple enough for the public, he discusses the nature of light and its behavior. Interspersed are philosophic musings and at times quotations from various poets.
