Abstract

Eye injuries present such an infinite number of possibilities, so many differences in course, extent, symptoms and complications, that while we may derive some valuable points from experience and may lay down rules and principles applicable to many conditions, still each serious eye injury is largely a rule to itself and offers an interesting field for study. I desire to present, briefly, three groups of three cases each, representing three serious forms of injury worthy of our attention. The first group comprises cases of foreign bodies in the lens; the second, foreign bodies in the iris; the third, wounds in or near the ciliary region.

GROUP 1: FOREIGN BODIES IN THE CRYSTALLINE LENS. 

Case 1.  —W. B. consulted me Octotber 13, 1894, with history of injury to right eye by a guncap nine years before.
