The three parts of this book are as follows: Part I covers the Pan-American Congress of 1957, the Chicago Ophthalmological Society Meeting of 1957, the Arthur Bedell Lecture of 1957, and a section on personal interviews. The latter seem to be tape recordings of interviews between the author and well-known ophthalmologists throughout the country. Part II is a new section on highlights of ocular surgery and includes the annual meeting on glaucoma sponsored by the National Society for the Prevention of Blindness. Part III covers the 1957 meeting of the American Academy of Ophthalmology and Otolaryngology, the last roundtable discussion of the Society of Eye Surgeons and Eye Fitters, and another section on personal interviews.

The book is a curious collection of academic ophthalmology, textbook instruction at the first-year residency level, and news coverage with a slant toward the Time-Look-U. S. News style. The illustrations particularly fall into this pattern.
