This book was initiated by a number of skin and scuba diving enthusiasts who met during the Fourth Annual Meeting of the Conference for National Cooperation in Aquatics, at Yale University, in 1954. It was the consensus that the fastgrowing interest in skin and scuba diving called for a handbook which should be written by authorities and a committee of CNCA was charged with the responsibility of producing such a text. All phases of this activity are treated in this book, each chapter of which is contributed by an expert. The book is written for the laity, but it will be of interest to ophthalmologists because of the various references to vision under water.
