Dr. Daicker studied the area between the ora serrata and the ciliary body, which he named the "fundus extremus." His investigations represent a combination of biomicroscopic examinations applying modification of the Goldmann lens in conjunction with histological evaluations. He utilized 333 postmortem eyes without known ocular pathology and examined 74 eyes with known eye changes. He also referred to hundreds of other specimens which were available to him. In addition, comparative anatomical analyses were made employing a number of animal eyes.
This book is profoundly interesting, extremely clear, well documented, and corroborated with excellent illustrations. His descriptions of the normal anatomy and configuration of the region of the ora serrata to the ciliary body are of explicit detail. He applies this thoroughness throughout the entire book. Descriptions of the histopathological changes that occur in the described region with trauma, inflammation, degeneration, or in conjunction with congenital abnormalities add to the
