The new edition of this well known manual has been thoroughly revised, with the assistance of Dr. Charles A. Perera.
The chapters on the ophthalmoscope and on the ocular manifestations of general diseases have been rewritten ; changes and additions have been made in the description of operations on the lids and for detachment of the retina. Additions have been incorporated, such as those dealing with dinitrophenol cataract, inclusion bodies, inclusion blenorrhea, acetylcholine therapy, "floaters," gonioscopy, the use of (paranormobutylaminobenzoyldimethylaminoethanol) pontocaine hydrochloride, recumbent spectacles and polaroid glass. Some new illustrations have been added, and others have been replaced.
Though the volume has been thoroughly brought up to date and many improvements have been added, it has not been increased in size. It continues to be one of the best textbooks for the under- graduate student and for the general practitioner.
