This book, the author states, treats only of ocular diseases in which homeopathic treatment is superior, particularly as until recently the official school of ophthalmology had only operations and external forms of treatment to suggest. Cataract and glaucoma, the author claims, are entitled to treatment essentially medical at the beginning. He believes that in more than one half of the ocular conditions external treatment and operations can be avoided if the condition is recognized and treated in time.

The following conditions are described : traumatism, blepharitis, conjunctivitis, epiphora, keratitis, iritis, choroiditis, cataract, glaucoma, retinitis, strabismus, ocular fatigue and oculocerebral overwork. The appropriate internal remedies are then given. In cataract these remedies are sodium chloride, Secale cornutum, magnesium carbonate, naphthalene, silicea and phosphorus; in glaucoma, atropine sulphate (!), cocaine, fused silver nitrate and phosphorus.
