In this work the student and practicing physician learn the why and wherefore of anomalies and methods of treatment and procedure. It contains, among others, chapters on retinoscopy, ophthalmoscopy, injuries, color-blindness, elementary optics, and refraction. The different operations for extraction of cataract are carefully considered, but we miss the orthoptic exercises for muscular insufficiency. An important feature of the treatise is an ophthalmologic glossary; this is not only a convenient but also a necessary adjunct, as is evident from the inaccurate pronunciation of many of our oculists, for instance of the word "chalazion," and even "pterygium."
