Video Title: The Olympian Ophthalmologist


This film is a biopic of Henry Stallard. The Olympian part of the title refers to his 1924 Olympic medal. This was, surprisingly, portrayed in the epic film CHARIOTS OF FIRE.

The ophthalmologist part understates, enormously, his dedicated achievements as a scientist, writer, teacher, artist, decorated WWll medical officer, and his recognition as a world renowned authority on retinoblastoma.

Seen with affectionate good humour, is the extant footage of Stallard at his Moorfields retirement dinner.

Presenter/Interviewer:This film was generously passed on to the ESCRS by Hugh Williams DO FRCS FRCOphth Honorary Consultant Surgeon Moorfields Eye Hospital London
