M. A. C., a white woman about 37 years of age, was referred to me by Dr. George W. Creswell on July 26, 1938. She stated that in March 1920, while she was working for the government in Boston, a hemorrhage occurred in her right eye. She was referred by the government authorities to Dr. H. B. C. Riemer, an oculist of Boston, who made a diagnosis of ecchymosis of the bulbar conjunctiva on the temporal side of the right eye.
From that time on, the patient stated, her right eye gave her trouble. She complained of photophobia, severe headaches, the sensation of having a foreign body in her eye and a feeling that her eye was crossed. The left eye was entirely normal. The right eye was normal except for what looked to be a cystoid degeneration of the conjunctiva on the temporal side just posterior to the insertion
