Ophthalmic Nursing, by Vera Darling and Margret Thrope. 40 Illustrations, 205 pages. 1975. Bailliere Tindall, London.

This book is informative and handy. It is written in simple language to facilitate complete understanding of the subject and touches on every aspect of nursing in this speciality. The basic sciences of anatomy, physiology, pharma­colog and optics have been adequately dealt with. The illustrations are well placed and pro­vide the fresher with an aid to better grasping.

An important fact brought out by the book, at the very outset, is how the routine in an Ophthalmic Ward and the handling of these patients, differs from that in a General Surgical or Medical Ward.

However, one would have liked to see a chapter on ophthalmic emergencies; like the treatment of burns, particularly acid and alkali, which a sister in this department may have to deal with before the ophthalmic surgeon arrives. A few details on sterilization and care of ophthalmic instruments could be included in the book.

This book is a must for every nurse who desires to serve ophthalmic patients.
