Excerpt from A Manual Diseases of the Eye

In this new edition the original purpose and plan of the work have been closely adhered to, and the size of the book has been but slightly increased. Yet many changes have been necessary in the way of descriptions of newly recognized conditions, and additional consideration of diseases or methods of treatment of which brief mention formerly seemed sufficient. In a few instances the teaching with regard to certain conditions has been essentially modified, or to some extent reversed. But an especial effort has been made to avoid being carried away by those temporary enthusiasms which become so noticeable in medical literature from time to time, only to disappear completely a little latter. It is felt that the permanent value of the Manual will be thus increased, even though it seems to show a lack of response to the "very latest" ideas.
