Atlas of Intraocular Tumors is a visual delight. As much or more than in any other field of medicine, ophthalmologists make abundant use of photographs to illustrate articles, books, and talks. As a result, the specialty of ophthalmic photography has developed. The photographer needs to be highly skilled in the necessary photographic techniques and about as skilled in the techniques of ophthalmic examination as the ophthalmologist. It is a joint venture of physician, photographer, and patient to obtain high-quality photographs of the eye in situ. This atlas excels in presenting beautiful clinical photographs of many ophthalmic tumors. For the nonophthalmologist, the text is a relatively quick and easy reference for ophthalmic tumors. The old Chinese proverb of "one picture is worth a thousand words" could apply.
