This is a comprehensive work, covering the field in an up-to-date, practical manner. Ocular hypersensitive reactions, for example, are divided into anaphylactic, atopic, microbial, and contact reactions as they affect the various anatomic sites—conjunctiva, eyelids, cornea, sclera, uvea, etc. Contact reactions, as from eyedrops and cosmetics, are discussed in great detail and with a sureness that reflects experience. In fact, more detailed consideration is given to the role of cosmetics than appears in some dermatologic textbooks.

The writing is clear, and the book abounds with illustrations, but too few are in natural color, and there is an extensive bibliography. The material is current and reflects accurately modern concepts of the complicated subject.
