This work is divided into two parts, of which the first is by Dr. Oliver and treats of embryology, macroscopic and microscopic anatomy, physiology, optics, physiological optics, examination of the eye, ophthalmoscopy, fundus-reflex test, methods of determination of errors of refraction and accommodation, and correction of errors of refraction and accommodation.

The painstaking care with which the author has developed every detail of his subject, has produced a work which leaves little to be desired; there is no padding or redundancy, and there is an earnestness born of an intimate knowledge of the subject and a sincere desire to convey instruction.

The second part of the work, by Dr. Norris, treats of the diseases and injuries of the eye, the eyelids and the orbit, including the affections of the optic nerve and its internal prolongations. The concluding chapter describes some of the more common and important operations on the eye.
