SPECIAL ARTICLE. THE TRANSPLANTING OF A RABBIT'S CORNEA INTO THE HUMAN EYE Dr. Julian J. Chishlom has recently successfully performed this operation at the Presbyterian Eye, Ear and Throat Charity Hospital, of Baltimore city. The patient was a healthy man, 35 years of age, who had lost both eyes from the effects of caustic lime three years since. Symblepharon, or the union of the eye-lids to the entire surface of the eye-balls, was the outgrowth of the accident, with the sloughing surfaces of conjunctiva induced by the lime. Operations had been done successfully to liberate the lids from the cornea, but still the fleshy opaque cornea remained with no prospect whatever of clearing up. In this hopelessly blind man Dr. Chisholm has successfully performed that wonderful operation devised by Prof. von Hippel, of Giessen, Germany, viz: the insertion of a clear piece of a rabbit's cornea into an opening made for it http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png JAMA American Medical Association
