Starting with the premise that one remembers what one sees better than what one hears, the author has written a textbook on ophthalmology which consists mainly of illustrations with a brief explanatory text. In the text will be found a description of the important symptoms, etiology and treatment of diseases of the eye. The arrangement of the subject matter is not the usual one but is the one easiest to follow in teaching; thus, the anatomic and pathologic features and the operative treatment, if any is indicated, are given for each clinical condition. The illustrations are principally photographs, but drawings are used when details are necessary. The pictures of the fundus are drawings in color.
