To the Editor:
—In the November, 1958, issue of the A. M. A. Archives of Ophthalmology, Dr. Robert W. Zeller has written a paper called "Multiple Targets in Visual Field Examinations with a Tangent Screen," wherein at the end of the summary he kindly credits me with the following: "The use of paddles to carry targets in tangent screen work was first suggested to me by Dr. Max Chamlin several years ago. To my knowledge, however, he has not used more than one target on the paddle."Since Dr. Zeller makes a special point of the use of multiple targets on one paddle, I would like to correct his impression by referring him to a paper entitled "Minimal Defects in Visual Field Studies," which I read before the Section of Ophthalmology, New York Academy of Medicine, April, 1948, and had published in the Archives of Ophthalmology in August, 1949 (42:126-139).
