This book contains some papers from an international symposium conducted in Singapore. The 12 articles are selected to inform ophthalmalogists of how to use the operating microscope and which operations can be most profitably performed under this type of microscope.

Lim is a distinguished ophthalmic surgeon in Singapore, and he and his associates, Khoo and Ang, contribute two chapters on soft cataracts and peripheral iridectomy. The other contributors are from England (Mr Roper-Hall of Birmingham, Mr D. J. Pierse and Mr D. G. McSteele of Surrey, and Mr P. G. Watson of Cambridge), from Australia (Mr I. Constable), from Japan (Prof S. Mishima and Dr K. Minoda), and from France (Prof M. Bonnet).

The text is precise and concise, and the illustrations are excellent. This monograph should be useful for anybody who is either contemplating to start on ocular microsurgery or who would like to improve his techniques.
