This text, in German, describes the various uses of electrosurgery in diseases of the eye. A short introduction covers the principles involved with the use of galvanocautery, electrolysis, and diathermy. The rest of the book describes diseases of the various parts of the eye in which electrosurgery has been found useful by the author, beginning with the lids and ending with detachment of the retina.

For those who read German this book will be found of real practical value. Preoperative and postoperative treatment and complications are dealt with in a concise and clear manner, and the illustrations are excellent. Many are in color. An excellent bibliography is appended.
