Dr. Lyle has presented a seemingly complex subject in such an interesting way that all ophthalmologists should be stimulated to start and/or continue the application of neurology to ophthalmology, inasmuch as the two are inseparable.
This book is profusely illustrated with original charts, fundal photographs, roentgenograms and visual field charts to correlate the anatomic, neurologic and ophthalmologic changes produced by developmental, inflammatory, vascular, neoplastic and traumatic lesions affecting the central nervous system. The extensive bibliography is more than sufficient to stimulate collateral reading.
Although the common and rare ocular syndromes are described, the ophthalmologic portion usually is quite overshadowed by a too detailed anatomic and neurologic description. But, all in all, Dr. Lyle's book is a much needed addition to every library and is highly recommended. The author is to be congratulated for a job well done.
