Current Concepts in Ophthalmology is a compilation of selected topics representing some of the current clinical work and interests of the staff of the Department of Ophthalmology, Washington University School of Medicine, St. Louis. The two authors have intended to present a probing and questioning analysis of interesting and intriguing problems in present-day ophthalmology. Certain sections on diabetic retinopathy, photocoagulation, and aspects of glaucoma contribute to ophthalmology, but most of the book reads like the "annual report." The preface does state that the format is less rigid and condensed than that required for journal publication—and this is meant to provide the authors with a "freer discussion" to be "read leisurely." The individual presentations are generally well written with good photographs and drawings. The subject material is concerned primarily with glaucoma and its related problems although other timely articles on cryosurgical cataract extraction, ophthalmodynamometry, and homocystinuria do emerge.
