This book is an outgrowth of the small manual that the authors prepared when they were still house officers at the Wilmer Institute in Baltimore. It has now grown into a pocket book but it is still of manageable size.
The book covers the treatment of ocular trauma from the most simple and superficial injuries to the severest perforations of the eye. The treatment includes not only the traditional method but includes the most advanced surgical techniques, such as vitreous suction cutting instruments and lensectomies. Similarly, the diagnostic methods discussed include not only the routine and standard examinations but also ultrasonic devices and specialized radiographic equipment.
All in all, this is a most useful book and should be available in every emergency room.
