The author of this work has taught refraction to undergraduate and graduate students for several years and has tested in the classroom and in the clinic the methods of refraction and measurements of ocular motility that have been promulgated by advocates of systems of investigation of ocular disorders. The physiological background of neuromuscular abnormalities has received unusual attention, for an understanding of the ocular musculature is paramount in the explanation of disturbances of ocular motility and their relation to comfortable vision. All terms are defined so clearly that the students are saved the confusion so common in treatises based on the mathematical treatment of clinical refraction. It is assumed that the student has a working knowledge of ophthalmic optics. Abundant references are added to each chapter, so that there is no needless repetition of mathematical formulas.
In a somewhat unorthodox arrangement, the 38 chapters cover the field from consideration of
