Dr. Charles Sheard has had considerable influence on the development of optics and visual physiology in this country. In 1952 at a meeting of the American Academy of Optometry in Rochester, N. Y., a number of papers were presented on applied physiological optics, one of which was contributed by Dr. Sheard. Many of those present felt that all of Dr. Sheard's contributions should be combined in one volume, since it was apparent that his work was not confined to optometry and optometric publications but spread into the field of opthalmology and opticianry. A sponsoring committee was established which represented all these three disciplines.

The contents of this volume include selections from editorials and short essays, largely published in the American Journal of Physiological Optics, of which Dr. Sheard was the Editor-in-Chief, followed by practically all of his papers published in this country and abroad.
