Could You Pass the 1919 Written Exam?

See for yourself with the questions below:

  • Embryology: Describe the development of the eyelids.

  • Anatomy: Describe the lachrymal apparatus.

  • Physiology: Describe the accommodation of the Eye and the method of effecting it.

  • Pathology: Describe the pathology of hypopion keratitis as produced by the pneumococcus.

  • Diseases: What is interstitial keratitis? Name the causes. Give the period of life at which it occurs and the changes in the eye that may accompany it.

If you knew these answers, you’d be in the company of renowned ophthalmologist Dr. Lucien Howe, who took (and passed) this examination.
