The Worm's Eye View

This month’s image shows blood vessels radiating from the optic nerve head to the left of center. Below on the right is an area of elevation and pallor resulting from surgery. The author of the 1976 painting is Terry Tarrant, one of the best-known ophthalmic medical illustrators, who spent many years working at the Institute of Ophthalmology and then Moorfields Eye Hospital in London, UK. A recent interview with Tarrant can be found on the Royal College of Ophthalmologists website.
