In the opening paper Merriam described the effect of radiation on cataract production. Adequate time-dose relationship was observed to give a slope that was expected when compared to known tissues. This presentation was followed by a delightful essay on "The Creation of Eve" (Veronese) by Karl Ascher.

Byrnes reported on his studies of the visual factors involved in automobile driving. He suggested that driving licenses should be based upon daylight operating, with additional permits required for night driving given or withheld.

Birge spoke on pseudoglaucoma which he defined as "false, deceptive, or deceitful glaucoma."

Scheie reported further on his favorable experiences with peripheral iridectomy combined with scleral cautery. His series included 57 eyes with infantile glaucoma and 15 eyes with juvenile glaucoma.

Maumenee reported further on the pathogenesis of congenital glaucoma, adding 11 eyes of six patients to his list.
