Alfred Terson

Arch Ophthalmol. 2011;129(6):790. doi:10.1001/archophthalmol.2011.121

The medical training of Alfred Terson (1838-1925) began in Toulouse, France, but he received his medical degree in Montpellier, France, in 1861 with a thesis on gout. After a number of years practicing medicine in various places in France, Terson returned to Toulouse where he began to pursue his interest in ophthalmology in earnest, founding a private ophthalmic clinic there as well as teaching ophthalmology at the university and Hôtel-Dieu. He retired from his clinic at the age of 83, at which time he turned it over to his sons, Albert and Jean, both of whom became well-respected ophthalmologists in their own right. Terson did not publish any books, but he did publish more than 60 articles in the journal Annales d’Oculistique.
