Authors: GEORGE S. ELLIS, M.D., GEORGE M. HAIK, M.D., CONRAD GREGORY, M.D., CHARLES AFEMAN, M.D.

Abstract

Ophthalmologic surgery may be attended by certain complications, mainly of local nature, though vomiting may also occur. The causative factors in the latter have not been recognized as yet. Other complications which may accompany any circumstances requiring confinement to bed may be encountered. The local complications which may accompany particularly operations upon cataracts and for glaucoma can be hazardous in terms of the ultimate result of the operation. In this series of papers attention has been given particularly to prevention or avoidance of complications.
