The research of ocular advantageous constitution less than physiologic and experimental stipulations is a comparatively younger department of ophthalmic learn, requiring a excessive measure of specialization. The few scientists, who're considering this type of examine are extensively scattered via out Europe. hence, the alternate of medical details, that's valuable for crit ical review and carrying on with stimulation of person paintings, is frequently impeded. In an at tempt to beat this challenge, a bunch of likeminded learn employees acquired jointly in Essen in spring 1972 and based ECOFS, the eu membership for Ophthalmic wonderful Struc ture. for the reason that its inauguration the membership has attracted the curiosity of increasingly more scientists engaged within the electron microscopic research of the attention. as soon as every year the contributors of the organization and invited visitors participate in a truly energetic clinical assembly. in the course of those workshops the contributors have plentiful oppurtunity to document intimately at the contemporary effects bought of their investigations and to check the validity in their conclusions in vigorous discussions with different experts. This book encompasses a nice variety of the papers provided on the 5th annual assembly of ECOFS in Zurich, Switzerland, on March 25 and 26, 1977. This stock of present study in ophthalmic electron microscopy may perhaps serve to notify either scien tifically oriented ophthalmologists and different investigators operating in comparable fields of research.
