|Ophthalmology contains many eponyms but not many of us know the people
behind these names, for example Doyne was an ophthalmologist in Oxford
Eye Hospital and that Argyll Robertson was the same person with double
barrel surnames as was the case for Marcus Gunn.
In this section, people who have given their names to ophthalmic diseases,
physiology or anatomy are included and where possible the articles that
make them famous. If you like to contribute, please submit the pictures
of your consultants, colleagues or friends who have eye diseases named
after them to email@example.com.
I would like to thank the owner of www.whonamedit.com for kindly agreeing
to me using some of the biographies. More eponyms can be found in www.whonamedit.com
