A look at the past . . .

SCHIOTZ (Christiana) discussed the subject of treatment before and after cataract extraction. The region of the eye must be made aseptic. Particularly must that source of infection, the region of the lashes, be done away with by epilation of the lashes. The lachrymal sac must be cleansed by injections of antiseptic solutions. After the operation the eye need be bandaged for three or four days only, but the dressings are to be changed morning and evening daily.
