Description
There are many reasons to deal with ophthalmic history. It demonstrates respect for our predecessors, tutors and masters of ophthalmology, whose lives and work deserve to be described and remembered. The only present-day reference to and remembrance of their names have been preserved in the eponymic names of some diseases, like Leber hereditary optic neuropathy, Parinaud disease, and Cogan syndrome, as well as the names of some physiologic and pathologic phenomena, like Mariotte blind spot, Roenne scotoma, and Snellen charts. Very rarely, however, is there any recognition of the person and his or her achievements behind the faade of the name. But ophthalmic history is not just recalling the past Ð it is often the field of original studies bringing new, presently unknown data about the past. Sometimes they verify past definitions and show that they were erroneous or just not justified. Our session will deliver all aspects of the ophthalmic history.
