The problem of managing the ophthalmologic literature is worsening. Finding the diminishing number of articles relevant to the "general practice" of ophthalmology has become a chore. Most articles in refereed journals outside my subspecialty seem difficult to understand. With minor reservations, I can recommend the Yearbook of Ophthalmology 1988 as a valuable aid.
"... I plan to add this to my yearly reading and recommend the same to others. "
The chapters of the Yearbook of Ophthalmology 1988 are the expected subdivisions of ophthalmology (cornea, retina, etc). Each chapter is introduced by an essay on a special topic by an expert in the field from the Chicago area. Following this, there is a collection of summaries of articles gleaned from a very broad literature with some appropriate comments by Drs Ernest or Deutsch. The job they have taken on is enormous, and one can forgive them those summaries that read very much
