Historical Significance: This book publishes the papers and other proceedings of a symposium held at Dartmouth College. The symposium, arranged on the initiative of the Editor David Bisno a graduate student of the Dartmouth Eye Institute, commemorates the 75th anniversary of the arrival of Adelbert Ames at Dartmouth College. Ames was the founder of the Dartmouth Eye Institute. Dartmouth College is an old institution of higher learning founded in 1769 and is one of the Ivy League universities of the USA. It is located in Hanover, New Hampshire. It is a small private liberal arts college but teaches medicine and engineering. It was the host institution for the famous Dartmouth Eye Institute (1935 to 1947) that in the few years of its existence contributed importantly to understanding of binocular vision, perception of space, stereopsis and aniseikonia. Kenneth Ogle and Adelbert Ames worked there together with a number of prominent USA ophthalmologists. The symposium was the last meeting of the surviving researchers of the Dartmouth Eye Institute and their families. Papers include those by Jay Enoch, Gunter von Noorden, Gerald Westheimer.
