The second edition of this book, published six years after the first edition, "Industrial Ophthalmology," represents an amplification of the large experience in the visual problems peculiar to industry as a result of studies during the war, and a more complete evaluation of screening tests of visual efficiency. Being situated in the highly industrialized community of Hammond, Ind., the author has had personal contact with the practical problems which arise when an attempt is made to select and place workers in jobs to which they are visually suited, to correct ocular defects, to provide adequate ocular protection and to treat injuries. The great variation of visual tasks in industry is emphasized by 151 illustrations, and the need for individualized selection of personnel, correction of defects and protection is reiterated frequently throughout the book.

The author was in close communication with the work of Joseph Tiffin and his group at Purdue
