This is the 1979 report of the French Ophthalmological Society. It was prepared by the staff of the Ophthalmology Clinic at Montpellier. As usual, this report covers in an encyclopedic fashion the entire topic. Injuries to the cornea, iris, chamber angle, crystalline lens, ciliary body, peripheral retina, and vitreous body are discussed in separate chapters. A large chapter deals with contact lenses and their use in posttraumatic astigmatism and unilateral aphakia. The most modern aspects of surgical treatment are described and the bibliography is superb.

The annual reports of the French Ophthalmological Society have indeed become valuable contributions to the ophthalmic literature.
