Johnny T., aged 11, while playing ball, Sept. 30, 1901, about 2:30 p. m., was struck in the left eye by a small hard rubber-ball. His playmate threw the ball at a distance of 25 or 30 feet. The blow was of sufficient force to knock the patient to the ground. Patient became sick, turned pale, and vomited three or four times; sickness lasted until 5 p. m., after which time he became drowsy. Vision of injured eye was entirely lost at time of accident. On October 1 pupil was dilated, some pain and tenderness on gentle pressure; he could see a little better than the day before. On October 2 he consulted me; vision was not so distinct as on the previous day; he could see only the shadow of a hand passed before the eye. Pupil was dilated, long axis in 60th meridian. Tension was lowered. Ophthalmoscopic examination
