Bulletin of the Ophthalmological Society of Egypt 1929. This article is only available in the PDF format. Download the PDF to view the article, as well as its associated figures and tables. Abstract The proceedings of the 1929 meeting of the Ophthalmological Society of Egypt are set forth in this bulletin. The articles and discussions deal with a variety of topics. Of more than average interest is a review of a thesis on trachoma written seventy-five years ago by Mahmoud Younes Effendi, who practiced ophthalmology in Cairo, after being, it is said, the first native doctor to receive training in the eye clinics of Paris. He vigorously combated the fantastic and barbarous therapeutic measures then in vogue, placing his reliance instead on the use of silver nitrate, copper sulphate and scarification. He used belladonna when there was corneal involvement, and practiced paracentesis when corneal perforation impended. This was in 1854. There follow some rather elementary remarks on the value of the slit-lamp and a none too convincing report on the value of injections of phenolaine for the clearing of corneal nebulae. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Archives of Ophthalmology American Medical Association
