Arch Ophthalmol. 1985;103(9):1276. doi:10.1001/archopht.1985.01050090026012

To the Editor.  —Several bulky and expensive devices are presently available to superimpose the results of fluorescein angiography onto fundus photographs.1,2 I have been using a simple, fast, and inexpensive method to achieve simultaneous visualization of results of both photography and angiography. The method is described as follows.A transparent strip of an overexposed color film is used. The fundus landmarks (disc and arcade) as well as the sites of disease are copied from various fluorescein angiograms with the use of a wax pencil or nonerasable ink pen. Through a light box, the transparent strip rests over the strip of fluorescein angiography, and the essential information of angiography is transferred into a small square of the transparent strip. This drawing is superimposed over a color fundus slide by following the major landmarks. The excess of the transparent film is cut around the borders of the color slide. The remaining transparent
