It is surprising that no textbook of ophthalmology has appeared from the pen of this internationally famous teacher until now. As is to be expected, this text is a beautifully organized, complete résumé of the field, with special emphasis on diseases of the conjunctiva. The section on trachoma will be of particular interest to ophthalmologists because of Lindner's own work in this field. He relates some amusing incidences in infecting his own eyes with Noguchia granulosis (Bacterium granulosis).
The book is intended for the student of ophthalmology, but contains many sections on treatment which will be of value to the practicing ophthalmologist.
