In the preface to this edition the author states that "from the medical press, as from many other sources, the author has received valuable suggestions, of which, in the preparation of this second edition, he has attempted to avail himself." As in the first edition, the references are inadequate and little trouble has been taken to correct inaccuracies in them. The illustrations of operative procedures are still reproduced in a size too small to be of the best advantage. Additions in this edition are "suggestions" on slit lamp microscopy, orthoptic training and observations relative to allergic ocular manifestations. Of the first two there are found merely references to available works concerning the subjects, and a careful perusal fails to divulge the allergic additions, nor is this subject indexed. In spite of these deficiencies, the contribution is of value. The size of the volume has not been materially increased.
