In 1960, the Seventh International Congress of Anatomists was held in New York City. On this occasion, the late Prof George Smelser organized the first symposium on the structure of the eye. The second symposium, in Wiesbadden, West Germany, was organized by Prof Rohen. The proceedings of the third symposium, which took place near Mt Fuji, Japan, in 1975, have been edited by Prof Yamada and Mishima. The text is entirely in English although the 39 papers were contributed by investigators from Asia, Europe, and North America.

The papers deal with a broad range of topics based on transmission and scanning electron microscopic studies of ocular tissues from human and experimental animals. Half the papers concern the retina and pigment epithelium; the remainder deal with the cornea, trabecular meshwork, the iris, the lens, the vitreous, the choroid, and the optic nerve. There is very little practical information in this book
