In March 1902, after an absence of about 6 weeks, he returned with exclusion of the right pupil, “bombé” iris, and “crater” pupil. The iris had not begun to bulge when the eye was examined in Chicago a few days previously. Dr Webster performed an iridectomy upward. After a week, the patient was discharged with the eye white. He was next seen in April 1906; the vision of the right eye was 2/200; he had a cataract in this eye, which had first become visible about a week previously.
