On more fully working out my system, I thought, however, that the term hypermetropia would he more in acoordanoe with the nomenclature I had already employed in the words ametropia and emmetropia, and this name has since that time been most generally adopted. My investigations respecting H are to be found in Ametropie en hare gevolgen, Utrecht, 1860, and in the Archiv fiir Ophthalmologic, Bd. vi., Abth. i., pp. 62-106, Abth. ii., pp. 210-243.

But the last-named writer has the merit of having been the first to make an attempt to trace the changes of the refractive condition of the eyes in the normal development of childhood. I think that less importance is to be attached in this respect to his measurements of the eyeball and of the crystalline lens after death, than to his derminations of the refractive oondition of the eyes at different periods of life with the aid of the ophthalmoscope, especially when previously to the investigation he paralysed the accommodative system with atropia.
