When I was asked to discuss the treatment of secondary glaucoma, I felt, in spite of the miscellaneous variety of conditions included under the name, that it might be of some practical use to review a group of cases with emphasis on a few types of glaucoma for which the treatment is by no means standardized. My series is taken chiefly from private records during the past ten years, since in a fair proportion of these cases treatment could be carried out under uniform conditions and with observation of the end results. Some cases were observed only in consultation or in the course of a "shopping tour," and in these no observations as to treatment are available ; so they are mentioned only in table 1.

This table indicates the causes of secondary glaucoma in my series. I have not attempted to ascertain the incidence of secondary glaucoma among all cases
