Excerpt from A Handbook of the Diseases of the Eye: And Their Treatment The Third Edition of this book was published in October, 1890, and I am gratified that the work continues to find favor, not only with students, for whom it is mainly intended, but also with practitioners. The book has now again been revised throughout, and brought up to date. In an Appendix, Holmgren's Method for Testing the Color Sense has been described in greater detail than before. Some new illustrations have been added. The great difficulty of an author in the preparation of a book like this consists in "Saying not all he might, but all he ought." It is his duty to give a succinct and practical account of his subject in its most modern aspect, without weighting his pages with excessive detail and prolonged discussion. This has been my aim. For deeper and wider information, larger handbooks, and original monographs, must be consulted. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
