This book presents four review articles and 20 papers presented at the Symposium in Munster, Germany from August 5 through 7, 1966. The review articles (all in English) present concisely the development and basic techniques of ultrasonic evaluation of the eye and orbit, clinical usage, and biometry of the eye. These articles are presented by experienced and authoritative observers and are of value to ophthalmologists already familiar with the field as well as to those seeking and up-to-date introduction to and survey of the field.

The 20 additional papers (eleven in English, six in German, and three in French) present an interesting array of current investigations and thought dealing with specific problems of ocular ultrasonography.
