The International Ophthalmology Clinics has chosen refraction as the subject of this particular volume. The topics discussed include astigmatism, the management of myopia and hypermetropia, aphakic refraction, refraction in children, aspheric ophthalmic lenses, and practical contact-lens management. The contributors are well known and have written chapters based on their individual experiences with certain types of refractive problems. References are kept to a minimum and mathematics are avoided, since it is assumed that the readers of this symposium will have access to other sources on such subjects as optics and pharmacology.
Chapters of particular interest are: Reading Difficulties in Children, Aspheric Ophthalmic Lenses, and Management of the Low Vision Patient. These subjects seemed most interesting to the reviewer, although the other chapters are packed with useful, clinical information. This symposium is recommended to all ophthalmologists concerned with the optical improvement of visual functions of the eye.
