Adam Zamenhof was greatly influenced by his father, Ludwik Zamenhof, who designed the international language Esperanto. Like his father, he became an ophthalmologist and joined the Esperanto movement. He published in the field of ophthalmology and was soon chosen as head of an ophthalmology department. He subsequently became Chief of the Orthodox Jewish Hospital at Czystem in Warsaw. He was active in the leadership of the Bialystok-Warsaw Chamber of Medical Doctors. He perished in the Nazi…

Experiences with the Lindner-Guist Operation *†
It is with methods of treatment of retinal detachment associated with the names of Lindner and Guist, that the author has concerned himself in recent years, and it was thought appropriate that his experiences with these methods should form the subject of this article.
Jules Gonin. Pioneer of retinal detachment surgery.
From 1902 to 1921 Jules Gonin almost single handedly changed the landscape of retinal detachment surgery forever, and despite rigorously detailed clinical observations and increasing success rates, his discovery was not readily accepted and sometimes openly opposed by a large part of the ophthalmic establishment.
The Anatomy of the Eye and Orbit
THIS book makes a bid for a unique position both in ophthalmology and anatomy; it is easy to understand why a second edition has so soon been called for.The Anatomy of the Eye and OrbitIncluding the

Early recurrences in retinal detachment are caused by either star shaped scars, or by changes in the sciera, and in some cases both X-ray treatment and reefing are advisable.
On slit-lamp microscopy
SummaryTheoretically the contact lens with a refractive power of -64 dioptres is superior to the concave pre-set lens (Hruby lens) or the convex lens (Bayadi). In practice the results are as follows:
Proteolytic fragments of ovalbumin display antimicrobial activity.
The results suggest that the food protein ovalbumin may supply the organism with antimicrobial peptides, supporting the immunodefences of the organism.
Antimicrobial peptides released by enzymatic hydrolysis of hen egg white lysozyme.
The results obtained in this study indicate that lysozyme possesses nonenzymatic bacteriostatic domains in its primary sequence and they are released by proteolytic hydrolysis.
Phosphatidyl choline and the growth in serum‐free medium of vascular endothelial and smooth muscle cells, and corneal endothelial cells
Observations were made in the case of vascular smooth muscle cells or bovine corneal endothelial cells maintained in medium supplemented with transferrin, fibroblast growth factor (FGF) or epidermal growth factors (EGF), and insulin and exposed to either high‐density lipoproteins or phosphatidyl choline.
