This book has been brought up to date, especially on therapeutics, giving the latest developments in corticotropin (ACTH) and cortisone; the subject of antibiotics in their relation to ophthalmology is well presented.

A unique innovation in the chapter on surgery is the deletion of all descriptions of surgical techniques, the chapter being devoted to a discussion of the indications for various surgical procedures.

The book is written especially for the undergraduate and the general physician, although every ophthalmologist should have one in his library. It is of value to anyone interested in ophthalmology.
