One of the great difficulties in modern clinical practice is the necessity, yet almost impossibility, for the hard-pressed clinician, already weeks behind in his appointments, to keep reasonably abreast of laboratory developments as they affect patient care. The symposia sponsored by the New Orleans Academy of Ophthalmology have been notable contributions toward supplying this need. The present one, surveying infectious diseases of the conjunctiva and cornea, is no exception. It is difficult to single out any contribution of such a distinguished panel but particular praise should go to Dr. Burns for his basic discussions of microbiology and therapeutics.

The only negative criticism that I can direct toward this publication is that it is now nearly two years since the actual symposium was held and already some parts are in need of revision. It would be better if the material could be printed earlier even though less elaborately.
