Most ophthalmologists would like to enhance the value of their clinical records by taking photographs, but few have enough technical knowledge of photography to establish a practical system for their offices. This guide to ophthalmic photography, prepared by the staff photographer of the Ophthalmological Foundation, should therefore be popular. The author reviews in an elementary manner various types of cameras, shutters, lenses, etc. The ophthalmologist will find useful information in the chapter on illumination and the judging of exposures but will find little to interest him in the technical details of developing and printing. The sections on copying, slide preparation and principles of projection will be of interest to all physicians who present papers before medical societies.
