Dr Thompson's Eye Water

Arch Ophthalmol. 2010;128(5):627. doi:10.1001/archophthalmol.2010.61

In 1795, Dr Isaac Thompson concocted an eye water of zinc sulfate, saffron, camphor, and rose water. It was sold as late as 1939. This is 1 of a series of 32 medical trade cards advertising the product from 1875 through 1895.
