This atlas has updated fundus manuals by the use of superb stereoscopic kodachromes. Each fundus photograph is carefully analyzed in a succinct text which also presents a brief case history for each patient. The clinical presentation is then interestingly amplified by 95 well chosen photomicrographs of histological eye sections illustrating the tissue pathology of the 105 steroscopic clinical views. The clinical material is comprehensive, of interest to all ophthalmologists, and avoids rarely seen exotic lesions. The photographic technique leaves little to be desired, in fact is so expert that this reviewer feels that the days of monocular funduscopy are numbered. The sense of depth and elevation provided by this method of funduscopic recording makes the retina more interesting and our evaluation of detail more rewarding.
The authors happily include a detailed chapter on the photographic methods employed which should stimulate more of us to try stereoscopic photographic recording. An account
