In this small book, which was published soon after the author's untimely death, Dr Portney summarizes, in depth, his method of examining the optic disc and visual field in patients with glaucoma. The book also describes other aspects of glaucoma theory and practice, but treats them much more superficially. Of interest and value are several tables describing the instruments used in projection perimetry. Some of the data in these tables is difficult to find elsewhere. Also of value are extensive annotated bibliographies. The book concludes with a brief history of the evolution of our current concepts of outflow obstruction in the primary glaucomas.
