To the Editor:
The series, "Our Ophthalmic Heritage," by Charles Snyder is always a great pleasure to read. The recent article on President Lincoln's eyes must of needs pique one's curiosity. The description of an intermittent left hypertropia with a compensatory right head tilt in a person with evidence of a depressed skull fracture over the left eye and a history of having been kicked violently above that eye by a horse, should require consideration of the possibility that the patient suffered from an avulsion of the trochlea.Just a thought.
