Manual of Refraction, 3rd edition (1979) edited by Albert E. Sloane and George E. Gracia, publishers Little, Brown and Com­pany, Boston, 353 pages, price, $ 15/-.

Manual of Refraction is already a popular book with both the students and teachers of refraction. The editors themselves point out that it is not a text book. It is a simple and practical book containing useful information about day to day problems in routine refrac­tion and prescription of glasses. It is a delight to go through chapters like "Pearls Learned by Experience". One vividly recollects one's own parallel situations and wonders why these facts were not told to him by his teachers.

The third edition of the book includes addi­tional material on lenses, automatic methods of refraction and section on muscle balance. The chapter on automated refraction is most welcome. This chapter includes a comparison of commercially available automated refractors and a note on the future of automated refrac­tion.
