This is the fifth and final volume of the series published as "Atlas of Diseases of the Anterior Segment of the Eye." This monumental work has become one of the outstanding contributions to ophthalmic literature. The beauty of the photographs is unexcelled. Dr Donaldson has established himself for decades as the allaround expert of ocular photography. His numerous contributions to scientific photography are recognized all over the world.

In its scope, completeness and beauty it can only be compared with the multivolume atlas published more than 40 years ago by Vogt. Donaldson has added the stereoscopic aspect and has incorporated the advances in our knowledge of diseases of the anterior segment.

The fifth volume covers many aspects of the crystalline lens. It starts with congenital anomalies, illustrates the various forms of cataract, and ends with some end results and complications of cataract extractions as they are performed today.
