Abstract

Abstract To the Editor: In July of last year, there appeared in this journal an editorial entitled: "A Forward Look at Ophthalmic Surgery."1I could hardly agree more with the views expressed therein; as a matter of fact I said practically the same in an article eight years ago, in this very journal.2 That the Editor thought it expedient to stress again the necessity of using the binocular microscope in eye surgery is a sorry proof that in all those years not much headway has been made. In his article, he laid most of the blame at the manufacturers' doorstep, and this is the only point on which I do not quite agree with him. Let us not forget that it took the slitlamp 40 years to attain its present form, and that only because there was a constant stream of suggestions for improvements and additions from ophthalmologists the References 1.
