Arch Ophthalmol. 2000;118(5):736. doi:

This is a definitive text on the ophthalmoscopic examination of the vitreous body. There are few similar works that have been attempted; the most obvious comparison is drawn to a previous work by Dr Schepens himself.

Although the book is appropriately dedicated to the young ophthalmologist, enthusiasm normally lags among ophthalmic trainees for the precise examination of a substance that is usually clear, has no known metabolic function, and is actively avoided by anterior segment surgeons. The ability to refer to a beautifully presented atlas such as this one seems ideal to encourage the effort needed to improve skill in examining the vitreous body.
