The 1964 meeting of the French Ophthalmological Society must have been most interesting, for a wide range of ocular problems was discussed. Considerable attention was devoted to methods and interpretation of electroretinography, as well as to the ERG changes in various eye diseases. In a well illustrated article, Strampelli describes a technique for keratoprosthesis, in which he uses a disc of dental bone, with the acrylic implant in its center. The section about the iris, which contains interesting clinical and experimental studies, is recommended. There are also many individual communications and meticulous case reports, which are well worthwhile.
The illustrations vary greatly in quality and are not so numerous as in comparable American publications. Some of the articles would have been improved if illustrations had been provided.
