Casanova & the spitfire pilots
Video Title: Casanova & the spitfire pilots
Description: This film is a unique account of the invention and development of the intraocular lens and cataract surgery.
Many young ophthalmologists today will open a box and insert the appropriate lens without ever knowing of the tens of thousands of patients whose eyesight was damaged during the early years of implant development.
Casanova’s observations of intraocular lenses could be linked to their use about 200 years before Harold Ridley and the link between ocular wounds sustained in aerial warfare by Battle of Britain pilots is well known.
This film is a unique account of the invention and development of the intraocular lens and cataract surgery.
Presenter/Interviewer:This film was generously passed on to the ESCRS by Hugh Williams DO FRCS FRCOphth Honorary Consultant Surgeon Moorfields Eye Hospital London
