This small volume contains reports presented at the Third International Symposium on Advances in Diagnostic Visual Optics, held in Tirrenia, Italy, May 1 through 4, 1986. The participants were from Europe, Japan, Canada, and the United States. The book contains some historical review reports, but whether they contribute much to such a symposium is questionable.

"... provides a useful review for physicians interested in what is going on in visual optics."

The section covering techniques for evaluating ocular structure contains some interesting reports. The article by Magnante et al, "In Vivo Measurements on Human Lens Using Quasielastic Light Scattering," gives a short synopsis of the clinical application of techniques more familiar to physicists than to physicians. In the applied optics section, there is a useful outline of methods for keeping most of the instruments at a reasonable distance from the patient. A report on hyperacuity by Baraldi and Enoch addresses the
