To the Editor:
—If any ophthalmologist has had occasion to see a case of closure of the central retinal artery, first recognized shortly after the patient came out of a general anesthesia, will he be so kind as to convey the details to me? Please note which eye was affected, type of anesthesia used, length of operation and its nature, whether or not the patient went into shock at the time of the operation and whether there was any evidence, such as corneal abrasion or ecchymosis of the lids, that the eye had been pressed on during the anesthesia.108 East Sixty-Sixth Street (21).
