This is a loose-leaf booklet dealing with refraction of the aphakic eye. The material is poorly arranged and repetitiously written, however, the text contains much valuable information. The author has made a practical study of the subject and points out the optical reasons for many of the pitfalls in refracting an eye without a crystalline lens. Positive statements abound—some of which may be open to question, yet this work can be recommended to all who are interested in the subject. The young surgeon will find many helpful hints which he should follow, the experienced operator will better understand the reasons for some of his failures, and the optician will do well to weigh most carefully the suggestions found in this volume. All in all, it is an excellent presentation of some of the perplexing problems encountered in postcataract refraction. There is also a discussion on the value of contact lenses
