Originally published in 1931, this book presents a detailed study of the facts and theories regarding detachment of the retina as they existed at the time of publication. The text is divided into six chapters, discussing the following areas: general aspects of the condition; the structure and function of involved tissues; pathogenesis; differential diagnosis; treatment; and prognosis. Illustrative figures and an appendix section are also included. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in opthalmology and the history of medicine.

This 23 page report is an initial investigation into the role that low-angle faulting may play in the formation of the Thermo Hot Springs Known Geothermal Area (KGRA), within the Sevier geothermal anomaly of southwestern Utah. The stratigraphy and structures exposed in the southern mineral mountains are used as an analog for studying the subsurface stratigraphy and the detachment fault within the Thermo Hot Springs KGRA.

This short book is an account of an approach to retinal detach ment surgery. I hope it will be of use to all those dealing with the detached retina, although it has been written mainly for the training ophthalmologist, who, becoming familiar with the methods of examination, is faced with a bewildering array of methods of treating the detached retina. The object of surgery is to produce the desired result in the least traumatic way possible and this involves correct interpretation of how the detached retina is likely to respond to the operation that is planned. I have therefore concentrated on the aspects of clinical examination that have a direct bearing on the planning of the type of operation to be performed. I have not attempted to deal with all the different surgical techniques currently practised, but have described only those that I believe represent the simplest, safest, and most effec tive methods. I have drawn widely on standard techniques; thus, for examination, Schepens' indirect ophthalmoscopy with scleral depression, Lincoffs use of cryotherapy and his modification of Custodis' non-drainage techniques at operation and Rosen gren's use of intraocular air. Because this book is not intended for the retinal surgical expert I have not dealt in great depth with rare cases, e. g. macular holes, or other conditions that are exceptionally difficult to treat (massive periretinal proliferation).
