Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: Books and internet are the recommended media to help you improving your quality and performance.

268 citations


Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: The present report concerns type C, in which a considerable difference was found between the nasal and temporal halves of the field, and Objective methods by means of a Zeiss refractionometer were employed.

76 citations


Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: A review of the literature describing the fundamental procedures used in corneal transplantation for optical purposes is given, with diagrams illustrating the details of the various technics employed.

36 citations


Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: Methods of correcting deformities in the region of the inner canthus either congenital or traumatic in origin and by photographs of patients so treated and by diagrams and descriptions of the operative procedures are illustrated.

24 citations


Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: The author recommends production of hypotony and maximal dilatation of pupil by use of adrenalin, 1 to 1000, subconjunctivally, and an oblique valve-like incision within the cornea through which lens and capsule may be removed.

22 citations


Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: The proportions of the various chemical constituents of the cornea have been determined and are given in this paper.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In many cases streptococci having elective localizing power have been isolated in uveitis, especially in the acute form, and removal and treatment with autogenous vaccines prepared from the involved eyes of rabbits that had received injections have been generally efficacious.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: Based on the hypothesis that progression of myopia may result from tension of the extraocular muscles during prolonged convergence in near work, all such cases were treated by dissociating the eyes for near vision through monocular cycloplegia by successful treatment.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: A report on 10,153 cases examined during 1931 in the refraction department of the Wills Hospital, excluding aphakic cases and those in which no glasses were prescribed, shows a division of 66.4 percent of hyperopia and 17 percent of myopia, 68 percent of all patients being astigmatic.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: The author presents this method as a valuable adjunct to the usual methods of localization of foreign bodies in the eye, in cases of double perforation of the globe.



Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: The ergograph was first adapted to this study by Howe and provides accurate control of rest periods, rate of approach and recession of test object, constant illumination, and simplification of the mechanical work of the sugject.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: The author describes the operative procedures he has found most effective in thirty years' experience and the anterior route is preferred as it involves no scleral incision which may lead to the retina being damaged.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: The author has collected a group of thirty-four cases from the literature since 1903, in which lenticular changes have resulted from the use of x-ray or radium therapy for various pathological ocular conditions, and comes to the conclusion that this therapy should be limited to the more serious eye conditions.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: A study of two groups of records made in the testing of fatigue of accommodation with ergographs 5 and 6 is presented, finding Duane's standard nearpoint of accommodation for age was not found to be a reliable criterion of ability to accommodate without rapid fatigue.


Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this article, Colonel Wright offers a number of interesting comments on the Smith and Barraquer methods, and also on the intracapsular technique now very commonly known under the name of Stanculeanu or Knapp.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: The author briefly describes his technic in removing magnetic foreign bodies from the eye by the scleral-incision route, and discusses his preference for it.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: A comparison of diathermy, infrared, and heating pad tested on dogs indicates that they are effectual in producing heat in the tissues in the above order.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: Six cases of keratoconus and one of high myopia are reported in which treatment was with Muller contact glasses, and in a few patients some disturbance of the glands of internal secretion was observed.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: The mechanical hypothesis of choked disc is supported by the anatomic findings in choked disc associated with leukemia, and normal blood cellular count in the vessels may cause the choking without engorgement of the vaginal sheath.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: Three cases are reported in which metallic foreign bodies were retained from five to eighteen years and two eyes kept useful vision, and histological examination showed recent suppurative process due to the presence of the foreign body.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: Treatment by radium resulted in complete disappearance of the tumors and a comprehensive review of the literature was presented.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: Anatomical and histological evidence is offered that a hyaloid membrane exists in human and animal eyes, attached to the pars plana of the ciliary body, and separating the aqueous from the vitreous chamber.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: This is a further exposition of the subject which was presented by the author in this Journal in March, 1923 and much new material in text and illustrations has been added.


Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: As a measure of hyperphoria the prolonged occlusion test is declared unsound because there is a marked tendency for the occluded eye to deviate upwards.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: Attention is called to the difference between producing, experimentally, isolated inflammations of the uveal tract and recurring uveitis.
