As stated in the preface, Stock's monograph aims chiefly to serve students and practicing oculists. It is not meant to convey textbook information but to describe the histopathologic changes of the more common diseases of the eye.
The effects of inflammatory and degenerative diseases and tumors on the various structures of the eye are gone into with considerable detail in chapters on the lids, lacrimal apparatus, conjunctiva, cornea and sclera, uvea, retina, optic nerve and orbit, and each is introduced by a brief description of the normal anatomy of the structure to which that chapter refers. There are also sections on the crystalline lens, glaucoma, the correlation between anatomy and refraction and, finally, injuries of the eye, including inflammatory sequelae.
