Abstract

As an illumination for eye work more directly above the patient than could be obtained from the Coaklev lamp at the side of the table was needed, the desired result was secured at small cost by having a blacksmith drill a quarter-inch hole through one leg of the stand and put in a link of quarterinch iron (Fig. 1).

A stout hook was serewed in the wall at the proper height to bring the lamp about 18 inches above the table (Fig. 2).

The sliding extension and the pivoted yoke of the Coakley stand permit the lamp to be placed at any desired angle or to be pushed back out of the way while the patient is getting on or off the table.
