Bulletin of the Ophthalmological Society of Egypt.

Arch Ophthalmol. 1931;6(1):143. doi:10.1001/archopht.1931.00820070152017

This publication, which is written partly in French and partly in English, is made up largely of communications brought before the Ophthalmological Society of Egypt at its twenty-seventh session. It begins with the opening address of the president, Dr. Sobhy Bey.

In the first paper, Peretz deals with the difficulties encountered in operating for cataract in Egypt and contributes nothing of note. Most of the difficulties enumerated are not indigenous to Egypt.

A new operation for trichiasis is then described by G. Salvati in an obscurely worded article. The illustrations are incredibly bad.

M. A. Barrada suggests a substitute for the speculum in operations for cataract. Sutures are introduced through the margins of the lid, which are held open by traction on the threads. The author seems unaware of the fact that this procedure is at least thirty years old.

Two cases of interstitial trachomatous keratitis are reported by Meyerhof.
