A Glimpse Of The Past Through The Opthalmologist Collection - Ophthalmology is the branch of medicine which deals with diseases of the eye. The word comes from the Greek "ophthalmos" meaning "eye" thus literally meaning "science of the eyes." Ophthalmologist are medically trained specialists, normally surgeons performing operations. They are first medical doctors and then specialize, entering a rigorous training schedule. Cataract surgery is performed by the removal of a human lens that is becoming opaque and implanting an artificial lens. One of the newest surgery is LASIK where an excimer laser is used to reshape the corneal stroma. Historically speaking, among the many individuals that have contributed to the field, are: Marie Colinet - used a magnet to remove a foreign object from an eye in 1627; Jacques Daviel - possibly the "father" of cataract surgery with intracapsular extraction before anesthesia and aseptic techniques; Florent Cunier - founded the first journal in 1838; Carl Ritter - proved myopia is mostly due to excessive axial length; Frans Donders - published pioneering analyses of ocular biomechanics that led to prescribing combinations of spherical and cylindrical lenses to treat astigmatism; Hermann Helmholtz - invented the ophthalmoscope in 1851. Others include Albrecht von Graefe, Ramon Castroviejo, Hermengildo Arruga, Sir Steward Duke-Elder, and Sir Howard Ridley. Ophthal-mologists!
