Documenta Ophthalmologica includes in their proceedings series the annual symposium of the International Society for Clinical Electrophysiology of Vision (ISCEV) (formerly the ISCERG), which was held in Ghent, Belgium, June 20 through 23, 1977. This arrangement provides the ophthalmic community with welcome enrichment from an area (clinical electrodiagnosis) that is otherwise sparsely covered. About 40% of the 54 articles are devoted to the main topic of the meeting, toxic manifestations on electroretinograms and electro-oculography. Considerable attention is given to metallosis. As usual, a part of the free contributions covers technical improvements on electrodiagnosis and attempts at standardization.
The volume is well edited and handsomely printed, with particular attention to the reproduction of halftone illustrations. The president of ISCEV, Professor Henkes, and the organizers of the symposium have again provided a forum for presentation and discussion of clinical electrodiagnosis in ophthalmology. The proceedings are an invaluable repository of the state
