About this Item

Series: Saunders' medical hand-atlases. 19 cm. 228, ads. 35, (5) pp. 40 color lithographic plates with 76 illus., 6 engravings, index. Gilt-stamped green cloth. Signature of D.E. Esterly [?](1900). George Edmund de Schweinitz (1858â"1938) was the Dean of American Ophthalmology. See his obituary by Walter R. Parker, M.D.; Casey Wood, M.D.; J. Herbert Parsons; W. E. Hughes, M.D. Archives of Ophthalmology, 1938; 20 (6):pp. 1074-1080. Otto Haab, Swiss ophthalmologist, born in Wulflingen, made numerous "contributions involving pathological anatomy of the eye, as well as treatment of eye-related lesions. In 1885 he clinically described senile macular degeneration, and investigated the atrophic and pigmentary changes in the macular region of the eye associated with the condition. His name is associated with several medical eponyms, including "Haab's reflex", which is another name for pupillary light reflex, and "Haab's magnet", a powerful magnet used for removing metallic particles from the eye. Also, the "Haab scale" is a device used to measure pupillary diameter, and "Haab's striae" are horizontal breaks in the Descemet membrane associated with congenital glaucoma." â" Wikipedia.
