This excellent practical résumé of the year's literature in ophthalmology is similar to the previous editions edited by Derrick Vail. It contains a special article on recent advances in diagnosis and medical therapy of chronic simple glaucoma, by Bernard Becker. The literature is covered by an anatomical classification, with added chapters on neurology and visual fields, glaucoma, therapy, surgery, and a short collection of miscellaneous subjects. The added advantage of this series of abstracts are the illustrations, which are plentiful, and the editorial comment, which always reflects good common sense and judgment.
