ROLLAND (Toulouse): On the prevention and treatment of myopia. Rolland treats myopia by instilling eserine and nasalorexis and obtains good results. Motais (Angers) believes that myopia in the young often begins with spasm of accommodation: still, treatment with atropine and hygienic regulations is sufficient, and operative measures are only exceptionally necessary. Badal(Bordeaux), who first carried out the stretching of the external nasal nerve has had no results with this method of treatment in myopia.
