Taylor, Charles Bell, 18291909.

Journal : The Practitioner ; vol. xxxi.

London : Macmillan and Co., 1883.

Description : 420-422 p., [3 l.] pl. ; ill.: 6 phot. ; 22 cm.

Photographs : before and after portraits of three clinical subjects, collotypes on printed leaves.

Subject : Eye — Strabismus ; surgical treatment.

Notes :

Imperfect operations for external strabismus are apt to be followed by more or less marked return of the deformity. I have not, however, observed many such cases in my practice. Here is a photograph (see Plate III.) of a patient on whom I operated six years ago. I had quite lost sight of him until he called upon me just a week ago, to ask if I would give him a copy of his original likeness, as the men with whom he worked positively refused to believe that he had ever had anything the matter with his eyes.—P. 422.
