The eleventh edition of this popular short textbook has been revised to include therapy with penicillin and sulfonamide drugs and short descriptions of toxoplasmosis and brucellosis. There are included chapters on causes and prevention of blindness, hygiene of vision, outline for complete examination of the eyes and therapeutic notes giving strength and dosage of drugs used in ophthalmology. The final 14 pages give the visual requirements of Great Britain for the army, navy, air forces, civil aviation, merchant marine, railroad workers, civil employees, police force and drivers' license.

The book is an adequate short textbook in ophthalmology for students and general practitioners.
