The author of this volume is an enthusiast in the eye treatment of chorea and epilepsy and backs up his opinion with the recital of cases apparently cured by the correction of the eye defects. It must be conceded in the present inaccurate state of the treatment of epilepsy that it is well in all cases for the practitioner to consider the relation of eye strain to the particular case under observation and there is no question but in many cases the correction of visual defects will be found of great advantage.
