IT GOES without saying that the primary objective of photography is to reproduce the actual conditions as exactly as possible. The stereoscopic photograph not only increases the impression of reality over that of the flat photograph but also often illustrates features which otherwise cannot be shown photographically. The various transparent media of the anterior segment offer multiple depths at which abnormalities can be visualized, and photography in the third dimension is required to demonstrate these locations. Furthermore, the effect of loss of detail due to the physical limitations of the film is appreciably reduced in the stereoscopic presentation (with the viewer or in stereoscopic projection), a fact which is explicable by the theory of replacement.1 The purpose of the present communication is to describe a stereocamera having several features which have not previously been utilized in stereoscopic photography of the eye,2 but which I have found advantageous.
