This small monograph evolved out of a symposium presented by the Department of Ophthalmology at the University of Texas in Houston and by the Texas Society for the Prevention of Blindness. Of its five chapters, the first deals with the eyelids and the lacrimal apparatus, the second with the differential diagnosis of the red eye, the third with glaucoma, the fourth with sudden loss of vision, and the fifth with pediatric eye problems.

All chapters are short, concise, and precise. That makes for easy reading and should prove to be most helpful for anybody who wants to have a short introduction into clinical ophthalmology. This book should be most useful to family practitioners and medical students.
