Abstract IT IS A happy assignment to address one's colleagues in honor of Arthur J. Bedell, honorary surgeon of this famous, busy, and useful hospital, whose doors have been open now a few days more than 118 years. I am grateful for the opportunity to pay my respects to Dr. Bedell, whose lifelong devotion to ophthalmology has done so much to advance its interests, and whose scientific contributions, notably in the field of interpretive photography of the fundus oculi, have helped our patients and ourselves in times of difficult decision. I have selected this subject because of the essential role that the zonule plays in modern intracapsular surgery. In spite of an extensive literature going back to the middle of the 18th century, not very much information about the zonule is at ready hand (however, see Beliner's "Biomicroscopy of the Living Eye"1) and available for practical application to the problem References 1.
