This is a report on the second meeting of the International Society for Eye Research held in Jerusalem in 1976. The organizer and editor was Dr S. Dikstein from the School of Pharmacy of the Hebrew University in Jerusalem.

This book is really an encyclopedia on the effect of drugs on various ocular structures and functions. Nothing like this has been available during the last 50 years; the scope of this endeavor is really remarkable. All the chapters are well organized and clearly presented. The contribution by Mishima and his associates from the University of Tokyo on the influence of drugs on the aqueous humor cites alone nearly 700 references. The last chapter by H. N. Bernstein lists the ocular side effects of systemic drugs.

This book is a useful and comprehensive reference book that should be available in every ophthalmic library.
