As more knowledge is gained in the various medical and surgical specialties, it becomes more difficult for anyone not engaged in any particular specialty to keep abreast of the advances in the latter. Any effort to spread knowledge in terms which will be useful, particularly to the general practitioner, is worthwhile. Such is the attempt made by the author of this volume. Much valuable information is contained in this small book, and many but not all of the illustrations are good and informative. The author has expanded the book to something more than a synopsis, however, by going into great detail on some subjects. Thus it is something more than a condensed statement and something less than a textbook. This diminishes its value as a ready reference to a nonophthalmologist who might be trying to track down the meaning of a particular sign or symptom.
