This book was written primarily to provide ophthalmic opticians with information for the use of drugs in their work. Since no one in this country except those holding the degree of M.D. can use drugs in the eyes, it is evident that the book is written from a fairly elementary standpoint and will have little interest for this practicing ophthalmologist.

The first chapter is devoted to the anatomy and physiology of the eye; the rest is largely concerned with the pharmacological action of drugs, their methods of instillation, and chapters on prescription writing. The book might be useful for nurses and medical students.
