As the title of this new text implies, it is designed to acquaint the pediatrician with the language and the problems of ophthalmology as it relates to his practice. Perhaps then this review would more appropriately appear in the pediatric journals, however, it deserves a word of praise from the ophthalmologists' point of view, in this journal. The editors, an ophthalmologist and pediatrician, have selected an outstanding group of contributors to cover succinctly all the major disciplines of ophthalmology both scientific and psychological with adequate background and introductory material preceding each major chapter on the ocular disorders of childhood. Pediatricians and paramedical personnel involved in the care of children will find this attractive wellillustrated text most rewarding. Ophthalmologists in training and in practice should find this an excellent specialized companion volume to more voluminous "cradle to grave" texts of ophthalmology.
