Arch Ophthalmol. 1941;25(6):941-968. doi:10.1001/archopht.1941.00870120021001
Abstract

. . . wir müssen die anatomischen und die functionellen Veränderungen, welche sich während des Lebens feststellen lassen, mit den Leichenbefunden in den successiven Entwicklungsphasen vergleichen und, so weit das möglich, auch Experimente an Thieren zu Hilfe nehmen, um irriger Deutung des Befundes im Leben und im Tode möglichst vorzubeugen.*

From C. F. von Arlt's Zur Lehre vom Glaucom,

Vienna, W. Braumüller, 1884, p. 1.

The experimental production of a condition similar to that known clinically as bullous keratitis was first reported about one year ago.1 This was followed by a report of certain practical observations pertaining to corneal edema.2 The assumption was made that both the experimental and the clinical condition have the same basic pathogenesis, consisting of osmotic attraction of water into the corneal epithelium from the tears or from other fluid outside the eye. The similarity of the two conditions is evidenced not only by their gross appearances
