This book is dedicated to the memory of Jack C. Copeland, the inventor of streak retinoscopy and the man who taught more ophthalmologists the art of refraction than anybody else in this country.

The manual is well organized and illustrated with numerous sketches and drawings. It is an excellent introduction to retinoscopy with a few remarks on refraction in general. The cookbook-like approach should be appealing to any beginning refractionist, and the book is strongly recommended to any first-year resident in ophthalmology.
