Ophthalmic Glossary.

Ophthalmic Glossary. 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 This glossary has little to recommend it. The reviewer has seldom seen a book with so many gross errors. A few examples will suffice to illustrate: The definition of chloroform is given as follows: "Cysts of cornea after use of..." Morgagnian cataract: "Has hard brown nucleus and does not liquefy." Myotonia atrophica (Steinert's disease): "Cataractous lens changes." Law, Sherrington's: "All muscles remain in slight stage of tonicity, with relaxation and contraction in the execution of a movement." Glare: "Diffusion of light over retina instead of sharp focus." There are numerous examples of misspelling. In the words of the author, this glossary was intended primarily not for the ophthalmologist but for the general practitioner, medical secretary, social service worker, optician and optometrist, and those of the laity who may need information on the terminology of ophthalmology. It would seem that such persons seeking help could find a more authoritative source. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png A.M.A. Archives of Ophthalmology American Medical Association
