During a long-term study of the vascular disease of the smaller blood vessels in diabetes mellitus, the conjunctival vessels in more than 1200 diabetic and nondiabetic subjects have been examined. As part of the ideal delineation of these vessels it was found essential to develop a technic to produce highly magnified, wide-field photographs of the smaller blood vessels and of the circulating blood in human subjects. This technic is presented and the possibility of the clinical application is emphasized.
