This well-known work contains concise descriptions and typical illustrations of the important affections of the eye. The different structures are treated of seriatim, commencing with the eyelid, and concluding with a chapter on diseases of the orbit. The most extensive chapter in the book is that devoted to normal refraction and errors of refraction. The consideration of the diseases of each structure commences with the anatomy and physiology of the part. The illustrations are much better than are usually found in manuals of this character, and the colored plates are fine specimens of the chromo-lithographic art. In the appendix will be found useful formulæ, reading tests and test types.
