The purpose of this paper is to report the results of my experience with intracapsular cataract extraction in a third series of cases, covering the period from my last report, March 1935, to November 1937. This series includes 268 cases from the wards of the Wills Hospital, in 250 of which there were no complications and in 18 of which complications were present, and 72 cases from private practice.
The Knapp method was used in all cases, as it is, in my opinion, one of the simplest methods and the freest from all unnecessary details for its accomplishment.
The beginner in the practice of ophthalmology who is fortunate enough to observe the results of various types of operation for cataract will select that method which appeals to him most strongly. The repetition of the same technic will render the operator proficient in its performance.
In spite of the fact
