Ophthalmologists, among all physicians, have brought the photographic recording of disease to a peak of perfection. Some, like David Donaldson, have evolved their own instrumentation for stereophotography of the anterior segment and fundus. The Iowa group has been fortunate in having in their midst the talented photographic technologist Lee Allen for more than 30 years. The present two-volume atlas is a triumph of collaboration between the clinician authors and their photographer associates.

The atlas incorporates 30 reels (Viewmaster) of seven views each for a total of 210 stereophotographs in full color. The majority of these are taken by means of a special adaptation, developed by the authors, of the Zeiss slit lamp. This employs a beam splitter to permit simultaneous finding and focusing of the photographic field through the observation system of the biomicroscope. The illuminating slit is varied to give the best optical section of the area desired. The
