In 1899 I read a paper before this Association on the accessory sinuses in relation to diseases of the eye. This was probably the first paper on this intricate subject at a joint meeting between the rhinologists and ophthalmologists in America. This subject did not seem to excite much interest on the part of the ophthalmologists at the time; indeed, it is only within the last five or six years that both ophthalmologists and rhinologists have awakened to the fact that the diseases of the accessory sinuses have a most important relation to the orbit and its contents. It is only by a cordial cooperation on the part of ophthalmologists and rhinologists that we are able to arrive at a correct appreciation of the effects of diseased sinuses on the eye, in order that the proper surgical procedures can be adopted to relieve this organ of the many obscure symptoms
