Iridectomy was found very difficult, owing to the extreme narrowness of the anterior chamber. It was performed on the right eye January 19th, and a fair piece of iris was excised. Seven hours after the operation severe pain came on, but was relieved by fomentations. Four days elapsed before the anterior chamber was reestablished. On the 27th a clear view of the fundus could be obtained, and the optic disc was found to be slightly cupped. Vision had increased to^, and was daily improving.doi:10.1056/nejm187903201001203 fatcat:p4dvnmbcrffarhqgfcjmz2d4hq
