DESPITE its obvious advantages, three-dimensional photography of the eye has been infrequently employed.* A special camera for this purpose was described by me several years ago.6 Subsequent models utilizing the same basic principles have now been used in the Howe Laboratory of Ophthalmology for five years, but the modifications have been sufficiently extensive to warrant designating the present model as a new camera.
The advantages of the present camera, leading to simpler operation, are these: (1) a new device for more accurate focusing; (2) a single film holder; (3) a more compact construction; (4) a wider range of magnification with a single focal length lens, and (5) a reflex mirror system. It retains the advantages of parallax correction without distortion (by translation), variable interlens distance, and the use of electronic flash (Strobe light). Although this camera was primarily designed for use in photography of the anterior segment and lens
