It offers me specific excitement to put in writing the foreword to this e-book; this can be principally since i've got dedicated a considerable a part of my lifestyles to the increase­ ment of the equipment utilized in ophthalmic study. not often has one in every of my scholars taken the possibility of dealing systematically with the chances of those equipment. Dr. Eisner is, even if, this type of exceptions. First, he has considerably enhanced the indentation touch glass; secondly, he has, with untiring enthusiasm, made a scientific choice of the conventional and pathologic findings, which, with the aid of the indentation touch glass and the slit lamp, should be saw within the outermost outer edge of the fundus and the ciliary physique. He has in comparison them to findings received with moderate magnification in post-mortem eyes and to histological sections. due to a lucky condition, W. Hess, who's either a great draughts guy and a grasp of the certain exam strategy, was once in a position to reproduce the visible phenomena faithfully. The reader who attempts to interpret those illustrations spatially will observe that this used to be frequently tough. it's a procedure which calls for a undeniable attempt of imagi­ state of area, yet that's very worthwhile. Dr. Eisner's monograph is an creation to a little-known department of biomicroscopy which broadens our technique of analysis and grants additional attention-grabbing features for the long run. I want him well-earned success.

Sample text

It differs from external cystoid degeneration in that no particular meridian is preferred, it is sharply delineated lry branching vessels, and the normal pattern of the overlYing vessels is preserved (Fig. 44). Reticular cystoid degeneration has been observed by Foos and Feman in 17% of 200 autopsies. In the living rye, however, reticular cystoid degeneration is seldom detected. The fine pattern of the pillars may be seen only with a small angle of acceptance, i. e. only via examination at the summit of the indentation protuberance.

Single zonule fibres may pass centripetally beyond the dentate reflex line. Insofar as the zonule fibres appear in the iridolenticular space, they are most readily seen focally with the wide slit beam as grey striae against a black background. Behind the edge of the lens, they are best observed in the reflected light as black striae against a red background. From the lens, the anterior hyaloid membrane extends along the ciliary body posteriorly. It is helpful first to examine the membrane anteriorly, since it is most readily visible there: at the border of the lens and in the iridolenticular space.

5. The Problem of Vitreoretinal Adhesions The importance of vitreoretinal adhesions in the origin of retinal tears is generally accepted and thus requires no further discussion. Another problem, however, is still open to question: Are there any morphological signs permitting diagnosis of vitreoretinal adhesions and evaluation of their dangers? This question is very important in practice, since the indication for prophylactic coagulation depends upon it. All sorts of retinal" degenerations" have been labelled dangerous adhesions and various classifications of their dangers have been proposed [4].
