Each year finds it progressively more difficult for a clinical ophthalmologist to keep his head above the flood of ophthalmic literature. It is clearly impossible for a clinician to read all that is published throughout the world in clinical fields, let alone their research aspects. Since many articles are not worth the time necessary to read them, we must always be indebted to those who painstakingly cull the literature to present us with condensed versions of the more useful articles.
I have found Doctor Hughes' annual Year Book most valuable in permitting me to keep track of ophthalmic subspecialties in which I have the least interest and knowledge. The editor's terse comments at the end of the articles are most timely. I hope he maintains the strength to continue this most helpful and practical yearly publication indefinitely. It fills a real need.
