Abstract This volume, designed for medical students and general practitioners, represents the combined efforts of the author and his eleven contributors. While it contains much valuable information, some of which is not found in most standard textbooks, it lacks continuity. The various aspects of ophthalmology are not presented in a uniform manner. Some subjects, such as the physiology of vision, are given in considerable detail, while others, of more practical value, are briefly reviewed. This is particularly noticeable in the chapters on extraocular muscles and the correction of optical defects. The diseases of the orbit, lachrymal apparatus, conjunctiva, and uvea are sufficiently comprehensive, but the tabulation of the salient features of specific corneal diseases is too brief to enable the student to gain a mental picture of the various types of keratitis. The subject of glaucoma is well discussed, and the characteristics of the three types of primary glaucoma are given
