This programmed text is designed to teach "the language of ophthalmology and the fundamentals of instrumentation and examination." In this it admirably succeeds, covering the following subjects: clinical anatomy of the eye, diagnostic instruments, vision testing, external examination, errors of refraction, ocular media, fundus examination, tonometry, and visual fields. In this day of a minimum number of hours devoted to ophthalmology in undergraduate teaching, this text should allow valuable classroom time to be devoted to more complex subjects. In addition, paramedical personnel should benefit widely fom this book designed to self-teaching. A few hours with this text should greatly increase the value of any ophthalmic technician or secretary.
